Surface in disrepair and potholes

Reported via desktop in the Pothole (NH) category anonymously at 11:54, Thu 23 December 2021

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3196122.

Sliproad has been in substantial disrepair for past 12 months. This morning (23/12/2021) I drove through a pothole which instantly led to concern it was such a 'bang' on the cars suspension it might actually cause mechanical failure to the suspension or shock absorbers. I'm fortunate in that I have a modern car with 'Extra Load' run flat tyres. However, on arriving home, there was a hissing from outside front tyre (the tyre taking most load on that sliproad). It has burst on its side wall. It is a very a substantial disrepair around the whole loop and it is very foreseeable it is causing damage to road users vehicles. In my case, new tyre £224. Chances of making the accountable authority (whether it be Highways England or Knowsley) admit awareness of an overdue repair, zero!

  • Slip road from westbound M62 directly onto M57 has considerable surface break up and has potholes in numerous places now. It’s been bad for some time but as at 1/1/22 it’s now beyond acceptable. Need to dodge the potholes for fear of damaging the car. When will this be addressed????
