  • Had to swerve it on a Voi scooter this morning (7 July) - had the front wheel gone in, I would have gone under a bus.

    Looks like a failed repair as the dip is in a patch of fresh tarmac.

  • Very dangerous, just missed it this morning, had to swerve but then berated for doing so. At lease 9-10 inches deep if not more, this need fixing urgently
