But the hole has been filled in gain – but motorists fear it will be back again soon.

One angry motorist said: “Sheffield Council needs to do something about this pothole – they keep doing makeshift repairs which last a few weeks but then it appears again and is getting bigger and bigger each time.

“Yesterday the carriageway was in a terrible state, I would be amazed if no vehicles were seriously damaged from it.

“I know Derek Dooley Way is a busy road and that carrying out a proper repair would be costly and cause congestion but something needs to be done.

“There could easily have been a crash yesterday with motorists swerving to avoid the damage.

“Sheffield Council needs to put its hand in its pockets and pay for a proper repair. I thought it had millions of pounds to spend on improving every road and pavement in the city?”
