Huge deep pot holes

Reported via desktop in the Pothole (NH) category anonymously at 20:09, Thursday 29 February 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5651060.

Deep dangerous pot holes in Lane 1 heading North on the A1.

Hit these pot holes this evening whilst following a lorry at a safe journey with no time to react and swap lanes due to traffic flow.

Appears to have been reported 5 Feb 2024, but still nothing has been done with it now being 29 Feb 2024.

If a driver was to swerve from not seeing this or a driver to hit the hole head on then a potential fatal accident could occur. Needs immediate attention by Highways.
