Subsidence and cracking on A36 St George's Hill

Reported in the Potholes & Road Surface category anonymously at 09:13, Tuesday 14 January 2020

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 2 minutes later. Council ref: 1936120.

There is a very large area of subsidence on the A36 on the side of the road heading towards Bath. I am worried it may become a sink hole. It is impossible to avoid driving over it. The location is at the Bath side exit of St George's Hill on the A36 heading towards Bath in Bathampton. It has been like this for at least a year but nothing has been done about it.
