Sudden hidden dip in the road with damaged road edge.

Reported via mobile in the Uneven surface category anonymously at 12:45, Fri 24 March 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 452655.

There is quite a large sudden hidden dip right across the whole road with a length of a good couple feet. This is NOT a pothole, it’s where the road has sunk from the trees pulling at the ground underneath. The edge of the road has also come away on the dike side where people used to try to avoid the dip but now the edge of the road is severely damaged too. I myself have broke a suspension spring upon hitting this dip in the dark when it first formed around a year ago. The dip needs a good load of tarmac stretched across it to level out the road again.
