  • Today Dec 30 2020 i have just witnessed motorist driving over the subsided road at the junction of Warwick close the motorist obviously didn't know that it was there,and almost lost control of his vehicle. The sunken depression is like an inverted sleeping policeman and is quite severe. This is an accident waiting to happen with consequences not only to motorists but cyclists and pedestrians alike.

  • This depression in the road is getting worse. If a motorcycle hits it there could be a nasty accident. At the very least damage to cars.
