Starting from the left lane of a 2 in 1 lane filter leading towards the M2 Motorway (London-Bound), has a Huge 2x2m Diameter Pothole/Ditch going across both lanes.

It has been steadily getting worst, but it has now got chunks of road breaking away and a piece of this Pothole flicked up and cracked my windscreen.

  • Thank you for your patience whilst our inspector reviewed your report. I'm very sorry to hear that your windscreen has been damaged.

    Our inspector visited the location and agrees that remedial work is needed to ensure the safety of road users.

    As such, a repair is planned as soon as the appropriate closure can be provided.

    Although we always aim to complete the repairs as quickly as possible, due to the requirement to keep our crews safe from oncoming traffic, we often have to schedule in a road closure which can cause delays to the turnaround time.

    We will provide a further update to confirm when the work has been completed or, in exceptional circumstances, a revised date.

    Kind regards Highways England
