The mother of all potholes in N6

I encountered this preposterous pothole in Kenwood Road N6, today. I could have got my arm in further, but thought I might never see it again.

Hole now filled - response from council:

I am responding to your email below concerning the hole in the road surface at Kenwood Road/Gaskell Road junction.

The location was inspected immediately we were notified and it was noted that there was a cavity in the road rather than a pothole. We instructed our contractor to excavate the road surface, backfill the hole and lay a new surface at road level.

I confirm that the works have been completed.

Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention.

Road surface excavated; hole backfilled; new surface laid. Neil, that seems like good sound response from the Council.

But weren't you worried in case you were reaching into a rats' nest?

Hi Alan - Yes. I did it pretty quick!
