Estimate some of the potholes may be six inches deep and 1-2 ft diameter. In wet weather these are filled with water and impossible to see or judge depth. Impact with one at 30mph was enough to trigger my automatic impact fuel cut-off (equivalent to a collision) and cause me to stop in the road. This road has been decimated repeatedly by the construction traffic either directly at this site or HGV movements to/from Hallen ind estate BAA depot. This particular section is just the worst part of overall deterioration.

  • The problem is not fixed. With construction work reducing the road to single carriageway these potholes are hard to negotiate.
