Hazard Type Pothole
Hazard Description Large and deep pothole next to a drain cover. This road (Gravel Hill, (A-349)) is one of the main arteries into Poole; it's extremely busy, with many LGVs using it 24 hours a day. Whilst swerving to miss this crater, on my road bike, I was close to getting hit by a following LGV that sounded its horn. This is a death trap. The hole is +3.5 inches in depth and increasing daily.
