6 or so potholes before the traffic getting worse.

Reported via mobile in the Pothole (minor) category anonymously at 14:04, Thursday 4 May 2023

Sent to TfL 11 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS4516974.

Several potholes down the lane, in outside lane heading east on A12, before the traffic lights at junction with Petersfield Avenue. This is near the traffic lights for around 20-30 m. Roadworks there for several days in the inside lane, but this has not been fixed in outside lane? These were previously reported, and I have notification as "fixed" but marker was somehow near Harold Court Rd, this is incorrect. They are still there with nothing at all done. Cars are often moving out of the lane to avoid them, this is dangerous.

  • I have noticed you have changed the catagory to minor pothole? Why do you think this is minor, when the potholes are in the braking zone for us motorbikes this is dangerous as we have to check where the potholes are while braking. Also i dont understand why only 1 lane out of 3 has currently been resurfaced. I think you need to get this resurfaced urgentl especially when people have been reporting this stretch of road for well over a year! I have tried calling someone on this but for some reason you cant get through to anyone, I would appreciate it if someone could call me on 0774 0778 773 and explain to me why TFL believe this road doesnt need resurfacing.
