Series of deep potholes on both clockwise and anti clockwise carriageway

Reported via mobile in the Pothole (NH) category anonymously at 16:16, Thursday 11 April 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5840162.

A series of deep and wide potholes exist and are spreading between junction 20 and 19 on the M60. The potholes have been present for several months and are spreading ever wider and deeper. In an emergency braking scenario the lack of consistant and even surface could create a very dangerous irregular braking friction surface. Additionally these potholes are lethal for motorcyclists, particularly if they are changing lane. The regular Highway Patrols surely have reported these already. It is clear from the location reporting map, this dangerous issue has been reported numerous times.

  • This pothole has caused my child to need to visit an and e after hitting your deep pothole featured here. Your hot hole left places here for weeks is now a SERIOUS RISK TO LIFE and very deep. I do ashore you truly British way of dealing with pot holes. (Pocket the funds, wait for injuries before repairs) (come on benny hill Britain) yous could fill the hole with cash as yous get so much of it and is clearly not spent on its intended uses. Maybe yous could work in tandem with the water companies and break britain more by filling the holes with all the spare sewage out great county has to spare (so much even the fishes get a share) come on national highways please fix the motorways deep and long and LIFE THREATENING holès. Ps I’m a solicitor and the letter before claim will follow.
