Deep pothole on nearside Westbound on A35

Reported via desktop in the Pothole (NH) category anonymously at 07:31, Mon 2 January 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4075575.

I spotted another deep pothole on the hill down into Honiton last night. Don't have the exact location as my dashcam's SD card became corrupted.

This one is going to be really dangerous for cyclists or any driver driving too close to the edge of the road.

I lost count how many potholes I either hit or narrowly avoided in both directions on the A35 in the dark last night. I suggest you send one of those camera road surface survey vehicles from Honiton to Dorchester in both directions. Other people are reporting damage to their vehicles on this stretch of the A35.

  • The forward end of the repair has failed again. The hole is now about 800mm long by 400mm wide and at least 60mm deep. The forward edge of the pothole is now previously undamaged surface that is now breaking up and failing. As I live in the house opposite the hole we are feeling an increasingly strong tremor through the house every time a heavy truck passes over it.

  • Given that the owner of the house opposite this pothole has posted on here complaining about tremors in their property I’m guessing this pothole has NOT been fixed.

    Still open, via questionnaire

  • The pot hole was fixed but it had failed in a matter of weeks, maybe something more drastic needs to be done to fit this reoccurring pothole

  • Drove to Devon this week and the pothole seems to have been fixed.

    State changed to: Fixed
