This hole is on the side of the road used by the buses (a red route) cars have to come out onto the main road on the other side . It is a hole about 6 inches deep which appears to go under the road surface extending away from the hole.

  • Came here to report this, as in the last few days the hole has gone from ~the diameter of a fist to ~the diameter of a dinner plate.

    The tarmac around this hole flexes underfoot, it must only be a matter of days before this gives way under a double-decker.
