    On a similar note, I had cause to go to Swadlincote today, via Abbots Bromley, Newborough and through the middle of Burton.

    Holy Hell! Burton has potholes of a size and quantity that defies belief.

    A drive round Liverpool would certainly recalibrate what you perceive to be a pothole.

    I think you'll find those are the Mersey tunnels :)

    There is a truly vicious one just out past Hopton Garage.

    It might be OK now, though, someone has sprayed a bit of white paint round it.

    The Doxey Road is starting to look a bit holey out the front here. Obviously nothing will be done, due to the new road.
    I might get a can of bright coloured paint and spray willys all over the road........

    The one on the Windmill roundabout is a bugger.

    One of those road survey vans has just cruised up Sandon Road, as if the issue isn't visible from the ISS using a pair of opera glasses from a Christmas cracker.

    I note that the Cavern in the Road outside Hopton Garage has been painted round for at least the third time.

    It seems possible that a little more effort than a bit of transient paint may be on the cards, at last. There has been quite a bit of tarmac bodged into holes on the back roads in the area lately.

    Possibly expecting a little more heavy traffic...?

    The Newport Road Railway Bridge Pothole has returned I see. Won't be long before you can actually view the railway tracks beneath it judging by the way my suspension clonked when I drove over it earlier.

    It's a free means to charge your car off the overheads :)

    At that sort of voltage it should charge pretty quickly ... probably enough to get into low Earth orbit ... :heyhey:
