52.04698 -2.442718

Surprised this hasn't been reported before, given the length of time it has been there. Pothole runs along road verge, at least 1m in length, and is a serious hazzard on a busy main road.

Fri, 16 Jan 2015 12:19:13 +0000
52.0383424750481 -2.43839599734492

There is a long pothole on the southern perimeter of the roundabout on the section leading to the westbound carriageway of Leadon Way (Ledbury by-pass). It has been there for months and causes vehicles to veer either side of the pothole to avoid hitting it. This roundabout (Homebase/Galebreaker) also serves New Mills Road estate and Lower Road Industrial Estate so traffic is heavy.
