On the A5 westbound between Merevale Road and Holly Lane roundabout there is a couple of patches of road surface which is awful and in need of urgent repair. They are that bad you have to swerve around them to avoid damaging your vehicle.

    Potholes are getting worse every day and are near impossible to avoid, I went down one at below 50 mph (well below the speed limit) a few days ago and it popped my tyre. I drive over this patch twice a day and it’s a miracle that my tyres have survived this long.
