Potholes on the Cambridge University Library access road.

I reported a pothole here in 2016 (#85820). It's got worse. Much worse.

More flooded potholes on Station Road, Cambridge, not marked up for repair...

This pothole has got much worse in the last day or two (but the whole of Station Road is awful).

Potholes down the middle of Sidgwick Avenue

Cambridge is falling apart.

Two patches collapsing on Fen Causeway

More potholes on another important cycling route

Coronation St (an important cycle route) just gets worse and worse.

Nasty pothole on an important cycle route

More potholes on this important cycle route.

Not just potholes, but the 20mph markings have virtually vanished too. Cambridge's roads are in a terrible state.

The surface of Hobson Street is crumbling again.

There are potholes opening up all along Lensfield Road (part of Cambridge's inner ring road).

I'd heard the new surface on Hills Road was falling apart, but didn't think it would be so bad.

Awful road surface on Kingston St, a busy cycle route.

Station Road will be awful until redevelopment is finished (if ever), but this pothole does need fixing.

Immediately south of where it was rebuilt, Tenison Avenue is now crumbling (like the rest of Cambridge).

Coronation Street is an important cycle route that the county refuses to maintain.

It's reappeared... it would be nice if Queen's Road could be repaired properly.

Just one of the potholes dotting Bridge Street which was resurfaced not that long ago. They are all in the middle of the road and more are appearing. (It has been reported.)

Rather than fix this pothole Cambridgeshire Council just painted a double yellow line through it.

I don't know what's happening beneath the south end of Grange Road, but the surface is collapsing in several places.

The road is crumbling simultaneously around all the ironwork on Regent St - there's a whole succession of them like this.

Potholes, Fulboooke Road

Large pothole on Selwyn Road, Cambridge

I recently spent ten days cycling the length of Taiwan and saw exactly one patch of bad road surface. Meanwhile in Cambridge all the roads are falling apart - this is the inner ring road, which really isn't safe for cycling in places.

Very nasty cycle trap pothole on Babraham Road.

Repainted, but the surface is still breaking up just where it causes problems for cyclists turning left.

This is one of the worst examples of bodged road repairs I've ever seen - and it seems to be a permanent feature now on NCN route 11.

Subsidence has opened a long crack on this cycleway near the M11. There are temporary signs warning of the uneven surface.

Cambridge's crumbling roads - due to buses braking hard for the stop here.

Pothole on Merton St, Cambridge

Pothole on Hardwick St

Tenison Road is crumbling and will presumably continue to do so at least until the CB2 development is finished.

Station Road, Cambridge, is collapsing - and will presumably continue to do so until (if ever) the CB2 redevelopment is done.

Pothole 'repaired' at the Hills Road/Station Road junction

Repairs never seem to last long here.

Collapsing speed cushion outside St Mary's School

Potholes, as everywhere in Cambridge these days.

Cambridge's inner ring road is crumbling.

There's a series of potholes along Selwyn Road, just where contraflow cyclists will hit them if there's a car heading west.

Station Road, Cambridge, is falling apart.

This is the only point where cyclists can cross the sluice without an almighty thump - and it's collapsing!

No specific potholes, but the whole of Coronation Street (an important cycle route from Cambridge station) is in a dreadful state.

This is pretty nasty - just at a zebra crossing where the road widens to two lines and drivers may be trying to squeeze down to the left of cars turning right.

Cambridge's inner ring road is collapsing - this is a particularly nasty pothole.

Two collapsing trenches

The problem with the condition of the roads in Cambridge at the moment is not just that there are dangerous potholes, but it's simply not possible to ride in a predictably straight line any more, except on a mountain bike.

Grantchester Street is a chain of potholes at the moment.

The sides of the path have been worn or broken so much that the usable tarmac for walking and cycling on has been reduced to a narrow strip.

This shows more clearly the state of the path in #72091 The ice rink is due towards the end of November too.

I've almost given up reporting potholes, the roads are so bad - but maybe I will bother with this one.

The foot/cycle path across Parker's Piece is crumbling badly in some spots.

The road is collapsing and will continue to do so until a) it's properly rebuilt and b) the Cambridge station area development is finished.

Who wouldn't drive to the huge M-S car park when this is walking/cycling alternative?

Horrible trench across the station-bound lane of Hills Road

Badly repaired and falling apart agin.

The whole street needs resurfacing.

Potholes in Newnham Croft

Dangerous pothole, around two edges of utility inspection cover, in middle of busy box-junction.Could unseat cyclist/motorcyclist contributing to injury accident.

More damage on West Road

Three potholes in a row on West Road

Paving collapsing around ironwork.

Getting worse and worse - the collapsing end of Bateman Street

I've been trying to get this trench fixed since December 12 - a real hazard for cyclists turning left into Station Road.

St Paul's Road is usually in terrible condition near Sancton Wood School.

Pothole and exposed ironwork on Pemberton Terrace

Pothole on Pemberton Terrace (just outside the area repaired a couple of years ago).

This hasn't got any better since #56276 was reported (twice, independently by two people.) It was patched a month or so ago but this stretch of St Andrew's Street badly needs resurfacing and has done so for around a year I think. (It may be ... [more]

Busy cut-through for taxis, also falling apart
