Deep pothole, sometimes covered by standing water which makes it also invisible to drivers and cyclists

Reported in the Potholes & road surface category by Caroline Thomas at 17:08, Thursday 23 January 2020

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 2 minutes later. Council ref: 1957403.

I do not know how long this pothole has been there - I do not normally use this road. There are a number but this particular one is deadly as it is deep and, after heavy rain, water covers it up completely so one cannot even avoid it. It is on the west side of the road, about half a mile up from the fork at the bottom of the hill where the road joins with Baggridge. It gave me two flat tyres.

  • I should add that the picture of my car is from when I limped home after going into the pothole and discovered I had TWO FLAT tyres. I think I may need a claim form but am uncertain of the procedure.
