Two or three holes on Station Road have been marked in yellow for repair - which is a total insult to all of us who have to tackle the road on anything less than a full-suspension mountain bike.

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. [About twice the size by January 2022]

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]

Update. On 27.6.21 I saw most of the holes had been filled though not the first one (see: #171156) inside the orange markings - so cyclists still have to look down and pick their way through in the three directions you can turn here. [Image ... [more]

The three speed cushions at the east end of Bateman St have been replaced by gentler full-width cushions. Did they also repair the potholes caused by drivers braking for the previous cushions? No, of course not.

[Update 29.5.21 see: #169770] [Image taken 4.5.21] Bootham junction with Gillygate, York. The damage around the Yorkshire Water access cover has not been repaired. Compare the damage with that in March 2021: #165685

This pothole has been filled, the ones around the corner on West Road have been marked up but left for later. Joined-up thinking?

This junction and most of Station Road are an absolute disaster - and no-one seems to care.

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.

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.

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