A damaged stretch of tarmac has become famous online.
Images of a pothole in Alexandra Parade in Glasgow have been shared via Facebook and Twitter after workmen ignored it.
The picture shows a newly-repaired section of road right next to a large pothole which appears to have been there for some time.
News of the strange repair emerged after it was reported via the website www.streetrepairs.co.uk, where it has been viewed 30,000 times.
Up to 90,000 people have also looked at it on Facebook.
Roads campaigner Mark Morrell, known as Mr Pothole on Twitter, said: “It’s madness, there’s a newly repair area right next to a hole.”
The news comes a day after Chancellor George Osborne announced an extra £200 million pound to deal with the backlog of road repairs.
Critics have pointed to the fact that the cash will do little to tackle Britain’s estimated £10.5bn road repairs backlog.
Mark Morrell said: “In my county of Northamptonshire alone, the backlog amounts to £381 million, so this money is not going to go very far.”
