Pothole on M53, Jct 1

Reported via desktop in the Pothole (NH) category anonymously at 10:54, Wed 27 September 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5036462.

Huge pothole on right hand lane, where M53 goes over the bridge (just before 50 road sign). The pothole covers the majority of the lane, so is very difficult to avoid. It also very deep, so will definitely cause damage to vehicles if they hit it. Vehicles were swerving into the first lane to avoid it, so very dangerous and it requires fixing asap.
