M5 J11a exit road on southbound carriageway

Reported via mobile in the Pothole category anonymously at 08:13, Wednesday 24 March 2021

Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

Huge pothole which was reported 1 month ago. I was not aware of it and why would one expect it? Hit with new near side front wheel whose tyre is brand new which now needs replacement. £180. Sounded like an impact to vehicle when there was no other car in sight. Very alarming and could have caused an accident. WHY HAS THIS NOT BEEN REPAIRED WHEN SOMEONE REPORTED IT ONE MONTH AGO? DOES ANYONE LISTEN?
