Unavoidable & DANGEROUS Pothole on 60mph Road

Reported via desktop in the Pothole on road/cycleway category anonymously at 12:40, Friday 22 January 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 385326.

Posting this as a new report as my update to a previous report has not been acknowledged and I am concerned this will cause a serious accident. --- I pass this often, but fortunately I spotted this on Sunday and have kept my eye out for it since.

I have spotted many cars getting wheels/tyres replaced on the side of the road on a daily basis. I see comments saying work is scheduled, but I consider this extremely dangerous, I have counted more than 15 comments of blown tyres and damaged alloys on here since Monday., but action has not been taken to make this safe.

I must stress that this is DANGEROUS, with oncoming traffic it is unavoidable and at night it can't be seen until it is too late.

I would strongly advise fencing off this pothole to prevents further accidents until repairs are possible. I am extremely concerned that it is only a matter of time until this causes a serious accident.

Please do not respond that work is scheduled with no ETA, please tell us this will be made safe with the upmost urgency.

  • Here's a Google Maps shot of the site from May 2019. The left hand side of the road, by the tree, was visibly breaking up. That's 18 months ago.
