Bromfield Road pothole not fixed after more than three months – it’s a potential killer (with video)

Bromfield Road is one of the busiest roads in Ludlow, both with vehicle traffic and pedestrians going to and from Ludlow School. It is meant to be slow road, 20mph for the most part, but it is not a road that always feels safe. There are narrow pavements shadowed by trees that are crammed with students, especially in the afternoon at schools out. At times they spill out onto the poorly lit zebra crossing before traffic is fully at a halt. And now there is the pothole. Pothole is a misnomer. A crater up to 15cm deep has been forming around a drain cover for a long while. It is now dangerous. It is going to blow a tyre or wreck a wheel just as vehicles approach the zebra crossing, let alone the danger to cyclists. That could lead to a serious accident. Is this the most dangerous pothole in Shropshire? Sadly, I doubt it.
