Large pothole on dividing dual carriage way line

The pothole is dangerous very large and in a position that makes it unavoidable. At a guess I would say 45cm wide. I have now got extensive damage to my car as this was not seen in very wet and dark road conditions. More pictures to follow if possible and I do have a video. But very high speed road as dual carriageway and not safe to slow down or get out. I believe the pothole has been present 2/3 weeks based on information from others, first time I experienced it was 28/1/2021 at 2am in the morning and now have damage to 3 wheels of my car and a costly garage bill I will be claiming for.
