Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5470313.

Deep potholes in BOTH lanes in the middle of the A56 dual carriageway as you are driving UP (North) towards Rising Bridge Roundabout Accrington; just as you pass Tesco superstore on the right hand side. reported these last winter; they were done but are back again. They were creator size and extremely dangerous. I did a lot of damage to my car and had to put in a claim. If these are not filled in as a matter of urgency they are going to get to crators again as a busy dual carriageway.
