Subsidence on the outside lane northbound

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 11:59, Wed 4 March 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council 2 minutes later. Council ref: 2039652.

This area of road subsidence is on the outside lane of the northbound carriageway as you pass the entrance to the Bourges boulevard macdonalds and old toys r us building. It's been there for many many months getting steadily deeper and wider-its now apx 4ft spanning across the lane and 2ft width as you drive over it . It is a signifucant dip in the road that can be felt substantially when driving over it especially at 40 mph which is the road speed limit. These pictures are taken from my car dash camera - front and right side. I have highlighted the dip.
