A17, on the left hand side of the road when approaching Swineshead Bridge

Reported via mobile in the Pothole on road/cycleway category anonymously at 18:33, Monday 13 March 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 450973.

Lincolnshire county council I do not know how you think this road is safe to drive on, it’s the fact it caused an instant blowout on my tyre which left me running on flat for me and stranded for an hour before finally receiving hospitality. Approximate size is about 1.27m x 0.93m but regardless of the size the depth of this pothole alone is enough to do significant damage and believe me it did. It was approximately 12:45pm on a Saturday afternoon which as you can imagine many tyre shops/car repair facilities run a little dry or come with an extortionate cost which does not benefit mine or anybody’s pocket especially in the current cost of living crisis. The issue has been present here for at least a few weeks and ever other time I have managed to avoid safely but on this occasion I was not able to as there was oncoming traffic. I am trying to be as polite as possible but as you can imagine it is frustrating when you pay road tax and for what…damage because of the roads to my car anyway? I would grateful for a response and some form of compensation.
