A Pothole problem has been found

Reported via desktop in the Pothole (minor) category anonymously at 10:57, Fri 10 November 2023

Sent to TfL 6 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS5196183.

Today 9th of November 2023: The pothole is still there since 4/5days ago and I am concerned about my car too going back home as I have no choice than pass through it and it always takes me by suprise driving at 20mph left side of the blackwall tunnel going towards dartford. Please fix the issue

The comment below was from August 2023: Comments: I was driving through the southbound section of the Blackwall Tunnel using the left hand lane for the entire journey through the tunnel.

The traffic was flowing at approximately 20MPH.

Me and my partner felt a huge bang from the vehicle which came as huge shock.

We both felt the underneath of the car hit the road surface.

I can only describe it as driving over a pot hole.

I was able to continue my journey home another 15 minutes away.

I went to my vehicle today to find a rear flat tire.

So I went to have it replaced to be told that it isn't a puncture, but the alloy wheel has cracked due to the force of the bang.

I have now got to pay to have my rear alloy repaired and a new tyre put on my vehicle due to the tyre now being unusable as I had to drive on the tyre as my vehicle does not come with a spare tyre.
