I noticed this a few days ago. The pothole is rapidly worsening because it is in the track of passing traffic. There is little room for traffic to move to avoid it.

  • This pothole is now dangerous. Elton Road is narrow with vehicles parked on either side. As a consequence it is difficult for vehicles to avoid the pothole.

    It now presents a real risk of injury to motorcyclists and cyclists.
