The A51 (London Road, Walgherton) just past the large lay-by after the junction with Back Lane.

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category by Cllr Janet Clowes at 02:37, Monday 17 April 2023

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 4448272.

This pothole has been reported previously but the case was closed without the defect being repaired. It has now become deeper and larger with a great area of the past repair tarmac also starting to disintegrate. It is a hazard to all road users and the situation is not helped by th exposed ironwork of the sinking drain just a couple of metres further on. On a main road where drivers start to accelerate out of the 40 mph stretch past the Boars Head, cars are hitting these hazards at speed which is especially concerning. Please do not close this request until the work has been completed. Thank you.
