Reported via desktop in the Road Potholes category anonymously at 17:15, Tuesday 4 June 2024

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 407702.

Number of deep potholes. These are particularly dangerous for cyclists and exceptionally dangerous during rain as they look like a simple puddle but are so deep they cause cyclists to stumble or fall. Yesterday saw a blind person trying to get in a car and was fortunate not to fall only because a helper caught them. The situation is degrading, the lobger they are left, the more work that will be needed to rectify the problem.
