Road subsidence fly-through

After lots of rain recently, my road has developed some pretty bad bog holes and bulges, made worse by trucks and other heavy vehicles. My wife almost bogged the car yesterday, but had no choice of line- as the car would bottom out in the middle.
I flew the drove manually mostly under overhanging trees (hence the 1mm GSD), with numerous thin dead branches to avoid.

That looks well rough through there, some nice flying👍

The wonders of Potree, allowing a 500mm wide drone to fly through a 200mm wide tyre trench in the mud :slight_smile:

Another nearby section of the road- high clearance vehicles only!

A little rough, mind you I’ve seen some of your roads on a program we have over here in the UK, called outback truckers (those guys must have a screw loose)


There’s been a few pictures posted on farcebook on the Tamworth Regional Weather page, showing a number of vehicles that had to be towed out with a tractor, a good indication of just how bad it was this morning. Contractors were working on it when I went past on my bike a few hours ago, so I hope it is in better shape now.
