Road Name Portsdown Hill Rd.
Hazard Type Pothole
Hazard Description Beautiful restored road by council dug up by BT to raise their manholes ABOVE the road surface, and backfilled trenches to BELOW . Inevitably one of these trenches has broken away to the full depth of the Iron frame for the manhole.
It will be only a matter of time before the other two manholes suffer the same fate.
The consequences of the existing hole remain to be seen. Hospital is nearby.
