Trial hole

Trial hole, originally uploaded by dakegra.

Spotted this on Albion Street in Leeds.

I'm not entirely sure what a trial hole is - perhaps LCC will replace it with a proper hole if the trial is successful! Or maybe have a series of holes around the centre of Leeds...

They make trial holes when there are potholes or problems with the road surface to find out what is going on with the road surface. They look at the different materials in the surface and see if there are problems underneath that (like the big unexpected hole they ended up with under the road in Headingley a while back, or damp issues). It's kind of like a road biopsy. We had one on our road a while ago.

I'd say as holes go, it's an abysmal failure.
