The most recent photos are listed first. See also photomap view.

Hills Road is falling apart again.

Crack in shared-use footway at bus stop.

Lensfield Road is always in terrible condition.

The towpath surface on this section of the Leeds Liverpool Canal is crumbling, but it's still good for cycling.

A flooded pothole on the path away from the Donald Dewar Sports Centre in Drumchapel.

Serious rocky lump at chicane through on north side And can we get rid of the chicanes?

I've pretty much given up reporting potholes like these, but maybe I'll try again.

Lensfield Road is falling apart, as usual, with gravel being thrown up.

I've more or less given up reporting potholes in Cambridge, but this one is bad, with loose stones being thrown around. In addition, if a driver knocked someone down on the zebra crossing they'd get away with it, as any competent lawyer wou ... [more]

The paint to the left shows where the old "cycle path" began, leaving the carriageway. The footpath on the right is in terrible condition and does not improve the further north one walks.

Extremely poor surface on this road, with very deep potholes and poor lighting.

The Grantchester Meadows path just doesn't get any better. This is the condition after the County Council have allegedly "fixed" it. All it needs is a tarmac path between the end of the surfaced road to the start of the surfaced path. I am ... [more]

They don't make 'em like they used to!

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.

Nasty new pothole next to the repair done in March (#97265) - couldn't they just fix the whole stretch of road?

Fall hazard. Steel borehole lining and cap left projecting over an inch above the path surface next to the busy A606 at the M11 intersection

A poorly filled trench across the shared-use footway/cycleway alongside the A9, and a 'Cyclists Dismount' sign at the pedestrian crossing. The shared footway continues (for a short distance) beyond the crossing.

Collapsing trench and pothole on Hills Road, Cambridge

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.

A pothole has appeared in the South Bank path.

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

Potholes on the Cambridge University Library access road.

Who says there are no potholes in the Tory villages?

I reported a pothole here in 2016 (#85820). It's got worse. Much worse.

Hills Road is falling apart (and what lane does that taxi driver think he's in anyway?)

Cambridge is falling apart - outside the University Centre

Potholes are just as bad in Waterbeach as in Cambridge

Humongous pothole at the #Kingston gate entrance of Richmond Park @richmondparkuk https://t.co/zTQIUGBsvt

Quite why this hole has been left in the road I don't know. The cycle lane has been replaced by the cycle track on the right.

Two patches collapsing on Fen Causeway

More potholes on another important cycling route

Coronation St (an important cycle route) just gets worse and worse.

Nasty pothole on an important cycle route

More potholes on this important cycle route.

Not just potholes, but the 20mph markings have virtually vanished too. Cambridge's roads are in a terrible state.

The surface of Hobson Street is crumbling again.

The TPT in typically fine form.

I'd heard the new surface on Hills Road was falling apart, but didn't think it would be so bad.

Bad pothole in Walthamstow

Awful road surface on Kingston St, a busy cycle route.

Station Road will be awful until redevelopment is finished (if ever), but this pothole does need fixing.

Immediately south of where it was rebuilt, Tenison Avenue is now crumbling (like the rest of Cambridge).

Coronation Street is an important cycle route that the county refuses to maintain.

Very wet section of NCN2

Take care if you're riding south on Govan Rd - a big chunk of road surface has not been reinstated after recent resurfacing. Reported to @GlasgowCC via #FillThatHole https://t.co/LIqNPAI57X https://t.co/sM2wzw6rme

It's reappeared... it would be nice if Queen's Road could be repaired properly.

Just one of the potholes dotting Bridge Street which was resurfaced not that long ago. They are all in the middle of the road and more are appearing. (It has been reported.)

A pothole in Radnor Street, with exposed cobbles.

Pothole. Kazbegi, Georgia.

Rather than fix this pothole Cambridgeshire Council just painted a double yellow line through it.

I don't know what's happening beneath the south end of Grange Road, but the surface is collapsing in several places.

Reported this on Victoria Bridge months ago... still there & getting worse. Lethal to cyclists. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 @GlasgowCC https://t.co/OsKCl7IJk5

A poorly maintained continuous footway across a back lane in Partick.

Awful potholes in Walton on Thames

The road is crumbling simultaneously around all the ironwork on Regent St - there's a whole succession of them like this.

A pothole at a bus stop in Wallacewell Road.

Potholes, Fulboooke Road

Large pothole on Selwyn Road, Cambridge

I recently spent ten days cycling the length of Taiwan and saw exactly one patch of bad road surface. Meanwhile in Cambridge all the roads are falling apart - this is the inner ring road, which really isn't safe for cycling in places.

potholed track

Road surface is very potholed

The surface of Coronation St (an important cycle route) is getting worse and worse.

Very nasty cycle trap pothole on Babraham Road.

Repainted, but the surface is still breaking up just where it causes problems for cyclists turning left.

This is one of the worst examples of bodged road repairs I've ever seen - and it seems to be a permanent feature now on NCN route 11.

Sunken drain southbound between Great Tey & Marks Tey. Reported to the council.

Warrington Waters Cycle Route on Howley Lane - appalling surface

Subsidence has opened a long crack on this cycleway near the M11. There are temporary signs warning of the uneven surface.

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.

Cambridge's crumbling roads - due to buses braking hard for the stop here.
