Sinkhole in the middle of Mill Road outside number 156. Reported at: https://highwaysreporting.cambridgeshire.gov.uk?id=00381396.

There's a pothole in that muddy puddle, but no warning sign has been provided.

A pothole in the ramp down to the Hayburn Street underpass on NCN7. Placeholder #125619 may concern this defect.

A faded cycle lane on Broomfield Road, at a pinch-point. It also leads into a chain of potholes at the bus stop.

[UPDATE 25.11.22: More of the cavities have been filled. CYC said the damage was to have been repaired end Oct 2021 but there was no tarmac to be had.] [Image taken 28.6.21] Duncombe Place/Museum Street/Blake Street/St Leonard's Place junct ... [more]

There's always been a rough surface here (a busy route for cyclists to the West Cambridge site, less so for cars) - but it's really breaking up now.

Update: On 25.6.21 I saw this had been repaired. The cone was now on the pavement. [Image taken 21.6.21] Burton Stone Lane, York. Pothole someone has found a cone to put over. The lanes are narrow and drivers' speeds high. Damage to the tar ... [more]

The footway is meant to be shared-use, but is not signed as such, and is covered in debris from the disintegrating road surface. This provides a cycle route between the Clyde Tunnel and some entrances to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Partial repair. Let's see how long it lasts this time.

This pothole never really goes away (see #20469, #80314, #107251) but it's particularly bad at the moment, and the county is ignoring requests for it to be fixed.

More potholes on West Road (now a bus route) - this one is visible on the satellite image!

This is not a repair. The buses will have that tarmac out in no time, and the pothole to the right has not been touched.

Do you think they might fix the pothole? Dream on...

Monster pothole! Others have already reported this one, e.g: https://highwaysreporting.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/?id=364491

[Image taken 15.3.21] Damage on Clifford Street-Nessgate, York (2/2). See also #165530.

[Image taken 15.3.21] Damage on Clifford Street-Nessgate, York (1/2). It's extensive and it's just where people turning right out of Coppergate (and its covid-19 cycle corridor) can't avoid it. See also #165531.

Typical for Cambridgeshire County Council - fix the bare minimum and ignore the rest.

4 new potholes have appeared in Granhams Rd, Great Shelford, next to an earlier repair. Nearside two are especially bad for people cycling. Reported to CCC for repair.

Showing the repaired pothole of #162424. The worst of it has been fixed, but it looks to me like they missed a bit with that puddle!

Nasty pothole on Cherry Hinton Road - with an edge just where most cyclists are likely to be riding. Someone else has already reported this at: https://highwaysreporting.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/?id=358509 Partially repaired a couple of ... [more]

Rocky debris from the pothole is being cast onto the cycleway. Reported at: https://highwaysreporting.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/ Reference: 00355079

One of several nasty breaks in the asphalt on the path between Caldercuilt Road and Acre Road.

@MCRCycleSam @RantyHighwayman @CyclingSurgeon @theJeremyVine I guess we should also factor in that you’ll have double deckers coming straight at nearly on the line... 😶 https://t.co/6dNqsRA9eY [See also #139326]

We asked for #SpaceForPeople, but we didn’t ask for skinny lanes, no segregation, and real life experience of the surface of the moon! We can do better! ☹️ https://t.co/dHxTevjhpx [See also #139536]

A contraflow cycle lane has been created on Argyle Street, but it is full of broken asphalt and dislodged stonework, and is nowhere near a smooth ride. With on-coming vehicles now in the centre of the carriageway (as in #139536), less oppor ... [more]

Most of the gullies on this section of road appeared to be blocked, but this one was also dislodged from its mounting.

After the path has been "fixed"... still full of water filled potholes

A big hole in the path between the bollards, and evidence of flooding and poor drainage.

The potholed and flooded route to Grantchester. It doesn't get better.

Obstructive pavement parking on the shared-use footway on Dalsholm Road between the Garscube Estate path and the Kelvin Walkway, forcing riders onto the crumbling carriageway. There is a free car park at the top of the hill in the backgroun ... [more]

The road surface at the end of Callendar Boulevard is even worse than this photograph! There is a painted cycle lane on the left side of the carriageway, but not the right.

A short section of potholed road on Carnbroe Road. Is there an equivalent section of missing surface on the newly built M8 motorway? I'm guessing there isn't.

Junction potholes in the Meiklewood Road cycle lane.

A pothole has appeared in the South Bank path.

A large pothole at a bus stop on North Hanover Street.

The County RoW officer says that local residents object to the surface of the Grantchester Meadows path here being repaired "because it would encourage parking". Well the state of it clearly doesn't deter parking, people park on the bits wi ... [more]

A pothole in Radnor Street, with exposed cobbles. UPDATE 2020: Road now resurfaced.

(via email) From North St into Woodlands Rd: "tramline" in the middle of the cycle lane & overhanging bushes #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/pLClrrtPDe

A pothole at a bus stop in Wallacewell Road.

Woods Lane, looking north from B3046 Farleigh Road Location: , Cliddesden (England, United Kingdom) This shows the poor visibility on a relatively wide part of Woods Lane, and the potholes along the Stop line

I'm guessing that Jamaica Street will be resurfaced when the contraflow bus lane is abolished (and a new one is created in Midland Street). But in the meantime, some gas covers need attention, as does the dip at the stop line.

Barrier at the Ardochrig Road entrance to the Whitelee Wind Farm (and pothole!). The track ceases to be asphalt once past the gate.

Exposed tramline in Hyndland Road.

Very badly potholed surface on restricted byway (Roman Road).

So has the cycle route suddenly gone back onto the road? Without warning (or space) a cycle lane appears in the road, carefully painting around a pothole, and does the straight ahead arrow mean the route is going straight on at the junction ... [more]

Maryhill Rd, potholes so deep you could lose a child in them #glasgowcycleinfraday https://twitter.com/kennymunro/status/563447503572701185

The foot/cycle path across Parker's Piece is crumbling badly in some spots.

Horrible trench across the station-bound lane of Hills Road

Badly repaired and falling apart agin.

Potholes taking up the full width of the left hand lane on the approach to A603 / M11 roundabout

This hasn't got any better since #56276 was reported (twice, independently by two people.) It was patched a month or so ago but this stretch of St Andrew's Street badly needs resurfacing and has done so for around a year I think. (It may be ... [more]

The left turn out of Downing Street (on the right of the photo) into St. Andrew's Street (in the foreground) is not as sharp as previously, see #9745. I waited ages but no bus made that turn, looking at the timetables only the tour buses ... [more]

I seem to recall that there was proposal to re-surface this car park which also serves as the entrance to Grantchester Meadows. Anyone in a buggy, a wheelchair or on a bike (without full suspension) would probably welcome it.

Pothole on Lensfield Road

What was the roughest patch of road in Cambridge (#14068 ) has finally been fixed - but not alas the smaller patch by the ironwork in the mid-distance.

A couple of bald spots.
