Pothole upon the approach to exit of junction 8

Reported via mobile in the Pothole (NH) category anonymously at 21:37, Friday 26 January 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5497203.

Pothole on the inside lane (1st lane) on the approach to the exit of junction 8 on m62. I was driving at 70mph when my car hit this pot hole, unknown depth however was enough for all in the car to wince and engine management light appeared on my dash board immediately. Pulled over just off the roundabout on junction 8 to see if turning my car on and off would erase the management light to no avail. Continue to drive albeit slower to my destination on the advice of my onboard computer. Arranged my car to be looked at on Friday 26th Jan 2024 resulting in diagnosed n/s/f damaged tyre needed replacing and n/s/f level sensor for suspension needed replacing. Evidence can be provided and car booked in for this repair work.
