~1m wide, 2m long, 0.2m deep depression in road outside 258 Gloucester Road

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4353303.
The depression has been reported numerous times over the past months and remains a significant hazard to cyclists, scooters and other road users while also being a huge annoyance to footpath users in wet weather due to continual splashing. There is also undermining of the kerbs and at least 1 is loose in its haunching where pointing has been eroded/washed out.
This could potentially prove fatal for a cyclist or e-scooter user as hitting it could result in the rider being thrown from the device and into the path of a bus/lorry/car.
Apparently there is debate about whether or not this is a fresh water leak. Either way, the responsibility for any accident (or heaven forbid, fatality) resulting from inaction sits firmly with the maintainer/controller of the roads - i.e. Bristol City Council.
A new enquiry has been raised for this issue.
