Surface collapsed into pothole by blocked drain. Danger to cyclists.

Reported via desktop in the Carriageway pothole category anonymously at 18:32, Sun 19 March 2023

Sent to Shropshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 14109962.

Drain is completely blocked. Large pothole has formed next to it (road surface semi-derelict). Road covered in mud from farm traffic, location is on bend down slope. Serious hazard to cyclists in avoiding this obstacles, and could also damage a vehicle.

Action required: 1) clear drain so that it functions., 2) proper repair to pothole which means using qualified operator and ensuring surface is smoothed. This does not mean dumping a shovelful of tarmac somewhere near the hole and leaving it as has been done nearby.
