On Saturday 12 May 2012 a colleague hit a large pot hole while cycling down Old Tai Tapu Rd near the intersection of Rhodes Rd, he was thrown over the handle bars and suffered a serious injuries including a broken back (breaks in five vertebrae), a broken rib, a broken pubic bone, and a shattered bone in one hand. He remains in the critical care trauma unit of Christchurch Public Hospital. This road has been in a serious state of disrepair for some time now and is not only a danger to cyclists, but for all road users. Can you please repair the pot holing in the Old Tai Tapu Rd as soon as possible
