Large Pothole

Reported via desktop in the Pothole (NH) category anonymously at 11:22, Thursday 2 May 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5924991.

I am reporting this problem because it has almost caused a RTC. I was driving along this road, northbound in my truck, transporting a vehicle with a trailer. The impact from hitting this pothole caused my vehicle to jolt extremely harsh, and caused my trailer to become detached. Luckily I was able use my truck to stop the detached trailer from veering into other lanes, but as a result there is now damage to my truck, the trailer and the car I was transporting. If I hadn't put myself in the path of the loose trailer this could have caused a major RTC. If the pothole wasn't there, this would have been avoided completely. I am having to claim through my insurance and I am holding the National Highways responsible for this incident.
