An earlier report in November says this has been fixed, if so it has opened up again. This is now a major hazard especially if people move out to avoid it on such a narrow road with oncoming traffic. I hit it on Friday night in total darkness and didn't see it at all, there was a loud thump and it felt like the axle had snapped in half, this is likely to damage vehicles, and be a potentially catastrophic hazard to cyclists

  • This is a serious pot hole at least 600 x 450 mm in size. Extremely dangerous in the dark, Ladies Mile has no street lighting. We drove into it blindly last night, (within speed limits, 20mph).... a massive impact, and are needing to have our car inspected as a result. If a cyclist hit this hole they would be thrown off and could cause a serious incident. The hole should be repaired immediately.
