Unavoidable large pothole in roadworks

Reported via desktop in the Pothole (NH) category anonymously at 08:02, Thursday 21 March 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5746260.

Large, deep pothole across entire filtered lane in the roadworks towards Filton. It is unavoidable as it is in the roadworks so there is no other lane to move in too. It is at least 8cm deep and been there for weeks! My car has taken a significant battering from this every morning which has resulted in a puncture. Needs repairing immediately.
