Speedy pothole repair

Last week I noticed a pothole appearing in the Barton Road outside n. 35.
By Thursday it was looking dangerous even though not large, but it was 4 inches deep so a danger to cyclists. On Thursday afternoon I went on line to https://highwaysreporting.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/ and used the facility to register the problem with highways. This is very easy to use and you can give the exact location of the problem with details.
Highways obviously considered it a hazard as they came out the following day and filled it in. So if you do notice a similar hazard, do report it using this facility and you could be as pleased as I was to see it actioned so quickly.
