Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

Drain cover surround has deep damage to it. It’s opposite a traffic island so is difficult to avoid. A safety issue to cyclists/motorcyclists and could cause damage to car wheels.

This is the second time I have reported it.

It was seen to be safety critical but was previously closed and no further action has been taken.
