  • It is really bad and you cant see it because the rain has covered over it so you cant see it unless you know its there.

  • I hit this pothole last night at 7.29pm in the dark. I have yet to have my wheels checked, but I will be surprised if my wheel has not been damaged. THIS IS AN OUTRAGEOUS< DANGEROUS POTHOLE.

  • Last night a young couple from Cambridge hit the pothole and damaged their wheel and tyre. The pothole needs sorting urgently before something serious happens.

  • Poor quality repair. So poor I drove around it as it looked like it hadn't been repaired at all. Give it a couple of weeks and it will be broken up again.

  • Can’t even tell it’s been repaired! Still have to avoid it. Will still cause damage if hit at the speed limit.

  • I will provide an update via pics tomorrow No repairs that are being carried out anywhere are lasting beyond a few weeks. How much is this costing and can it not be done properly. It would be interesting to know how much is being spent on compensation

  • Freedom of information request will inform how much is being spent on compensation.

    This is a clear example of council failing to meet its responsibilities and conform to their own duty of care.

    I will be monitoring this and updating photographs as this incredibly poor quality repair inevitably deteriorates rapidly.

  • This is a pic taken today by my partner who had to avoid a car coming towards him. The car had swerved around the pothole onto his side of the road.

  • 3.30pm on 20 November. The most pathetic repair I have seen - contractors have not filled the hole!! This will be as bad within days.

    Please return and do a job that is fit for purpose.
