Large pothole

Reported via mobile in the Roads category anonymously at 22:05, Friday 9 February 2024

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5556544.

I drove over a large pothole on Thursday, 8 February 2024 in Henshaw Road opposite a road island. It was raining and beginning to get dark so pothole was not immediately obvious. I was only driving 20 mph and suddenly there was a loud bang and my car really jolted. I pulled over and 2 other people had pulled over too. One had a flat tyre and wheel damage. We went to inspect road and saw a huge pothole. I am now concerned that I may have damaged my suspension spring or arm so wish to log this in case. I only recently had some repairs carried out and dont want further bills. Considering the low speed i was driving I was very surprised at how severe the jolt was. Impossible to see how deep the pothole was as it was filled with rain water.
