Junction of Hartwell Cresent and South Street - Massive Pothole

Reported via desktop in the Potholes category anonymously at 19:21, Friday 14 January 2022

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 365900.

This pothole is massive. It wasn't visible last night in the dark. I drove over it causing my front passenger tire to burst and go flat. When I visited the garage this morning they found that it had caused a bulge on the other tyre too and thrown out the tracking. As a result I had to replace both tyres and have the tracking done at a cost of £281.00!! The car was only MOT and serviced a week ago so I can evidence the front tires and car were sound until this. Also if a motorcycle hits this it will kill them. I have photographed this report to ensure it is dealt with.
