    This pot hole has been identified and still not fixed in nearly a week. I have hit it this morning and it has completely broken my alloy wheel. I was the 5th car in a queue in the entrance to seabank power station changing tyre. A previous post says this was 8 inches deep but from image it is over my ankle. I will claim for damages from Bristol City council once I have had the car assessed and fixed. I have also had to take a day holiday from work because of this! I'm EXTREMELY unhappy!

  • I hit this pot hole this morning at 0530. It has split my alloy wheel and shredded the tyre. Looks like this has been there for well over a week and no one from the council has as much as put a sign up. They will be getting my repair bill.

    My son hit this pothole in the dark at 0715hrs today and burst his left front tyre. Impossible to see in the dark. Obviously known about by council as marked with yellow paint ( invisible in dark though). Car needs new wheel and tyre . When fixed will send bill to council. Come on Bristol CC a lot of people are going to work at that time of the morning. The least you can do is make road safe for us. A lot of other cars getting wheels changed on vicinity so not alone in this problem.
