  • Hi, I was travelling on the A56 this evening, and the potholes mentioned above are ‘ravines’. They are at least 6 potholes, 7-10 m long, and 8-12cm deep. I unfortunately hit the ‘array’ of potholes this evening with my children in the car. The rumbling and impact was intense, I temporarily lost control as I became ‘logged in the pothole’; I had an immediate pressure warning and caution to stop. I managed to pull over, and on inspection… the pothole had split my tyre in two places; leaving a gapping hole. Fortunately I didn’t crash, and had time to exit the A56… however, this is a significant risk and extremely hazardous to the public. Within 10 minutes of me pulling over (commerce st), another car pulled behind me with exactly the same damage. This is unacceptable.
