M53 between J7 and J8, deep pothole

Reported via mobile in the Pothole (NH) category anonymously at 09:12, Tuesday 25 June 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 6150591.

The pothole is fairly deep, to the point its chipped my alloy wheel, it could really do with being rectified immediately. It felt like the entire side of my car went down a ditch. The pothole is in the left lane on the M53 between junctions 7 and 8, I believe its near the sweeping bend, I can't quite recall exactly where but it isn't too far after Junction 7.
