There is a growing hole in Fendalton Rd between the railway crossing and Jacksons Rd, in the westbound cycle lane. There is sufficient undermining that it will soon be affected by heavy vehicles in the traffic lane, if not already. It has become a cycle safety risk due to swerving into the traffic lane, and may become a fall risk too. There is a similar patched slump a few metres to the east that may indicate an area of basecourse undermining issues. A few weeks ago a slight sag appeared. A week or so ago the seal broke through. In the last week it has become several times larger. Someone at Council would probably quite like to catch this rapidly deteriorating situation before it gets too much worse.
