yes! i hit the two combo craters....... holy fuck i thought it was over, but i checked it out and my rims and tires seem fine... scary though, i couldn't avoid it because there was a merging car and one on my left side, it was like hitting a curb

there's this huge ass one on cameron street near north road.
it's the small street in front of the big walmart of lougheed mall.

it's not really a 'hole', it's more like a part of the road is missing. at least 20cm deep.

saw it 3 days ago. probably fixed by now...?

There's a huge pothole on Lougheed Hwy right past Dewdney Trunk Rd/Ford in Pitt Meadows on the center lane when you get off the Pitt River Bridge heading eastbound. *Careful.

Of all the Lower Mainland, the City of Burnaby is the worst when it comes to road maintenance, even in the middle of summer. The roads are just terrible.

As far as getting reimbursements from any City because of potholes, it would be very difficult I think to be able to prove the city was negligent in any way, given the recent weather and the fact the whole region is dealing with them at the moment. But still give it a try...

went by that pothole last nite and it appears that the city attempted to patch it up a bit...

it's an ugly patch job but at least you won't fall in there and end up in China anymore.

20cm DEEP... 20cm wide is nothing..
this thing im talking about is about 1 meter wide.

even a big pick up truck stopped and scared to cross it.
there's pretty much no way around it if you are going down cameron street from north road.

they better fix it, or iif anybody is curious, you can go check it out lol
that hole can sure do all sorts of damage to any car
or even get a car with small wheels (13inch?) stuck easily.
