20 feet long ruts and 2ft by 1ft by 6inch larg pothole

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 19:16, Wednesday 24 February 2021

Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

The deep ruts where the lane marking used to be are stupid dangerous for motorcyclists, but the pot-hole in the right most lane is deep enough for lorry wheels to disappear into, so need to be repaired NOW!!!.

Like my previous report, this location needs to be properly repaired. As in cut the whole section out, not the cheap patch jobs Highways have been doing on this overpass since 2011.

  • I have just hit this in my car and as it was dark I wasnt able to see it. Very surprised my car sustained no damage I can see as yet considering the noise it made. This is off a motorway slip road and going through green lights you are carrying some speed as I was. This is totally ridiculous that this was reported over a week ago and no action has been taken. Its extremely dangerous!

  • This is an exceptionally dangerous pothole part entire series around the M1 Junction 5 roundabout exits, which all need to be fixed before someone is seriously hurt, especially motorcyclists!

  • The large pothole in the second image has been partially filled in, but this is sew inches below the main road surface.

    As viewed it from the overpass side (not the M1 slip road side) I didn't get enough time to check the long 20ft ruts. I will need to swing past there again to check those.

    And I will come back here with photos of the work that been done thus far.
