Tarmac missing around drain type cover in road

Reported via desktop in the Pothole (NH) category by Susan Pearce at 18:43, Tuesday 20 February 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5606657.

I reported this 6th December and you said you repaired it, it never was. The square METAL COVER has a good few inches deep around it with no tarmac. It has sharp protruding edges and would burst your tyre. Now the nights are light you can drive around it. It is between UK storage and the Ozis food van. It is in first lane you would be in to join the m5 approaching the roundabout.
