Reported via desktop in the Pothole (NH) category anonymously at 10:37, Wednesday 17 January 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5454491.

Deep pothole in 2nd lane heading from clatterbridge to arrowe park. Very deep pothole. Represents a signficant danger to road users. Likely to cause extensive damage to cars and could cause loss of control of car.

Please note, I am considering having to stop using the M53 as there are so many potholes going in both directions, and the M53 is becoming too dangerous to use. I use the M53 to go to work at the hospital every day, but if something isn't done soon, I will have to use the town routes. Hitting a pothole at 30mph is less frightening than hitting one at 70mph!!!
