The potholes along Southwark Street have become nothing short of highly dangerous. There is one on the eastbound side that is almost a foot deep and another of the same depth toward Blackfriars Bridge on the other side. They have been there for weeks and weeks. Will Southwark Council wait until a motorcyclist has killed him/herself and untold amounts of other vehicles have wrecked their suspension systems before doing something about it?
Surely it can't be beyond their capabilities to send someone out with a wheelbarrowful of concrete or tarmac to fill them in?
I lost a tyre,the wheel was bent and the wheel trim ripped off and broken thanks to an enormous hole at the junction of Southwark Street and Great Suffolk Street.It was a Saturday morning but after numerous phone calls to Southwark Council Highways department an inspector was sent to meet me at the sight.I took photos in his presence-and lo and behold- the hole wasn't there later in the day!I got compensation-eventually-for the replacement tyre and wheel trim and repair to the wheel.So get onto the highways department,tell them you've got photos and it's surprising how quickly they respond!
