How are Potholes formed?

The images below are of the recently tarred service lane at Oshodi, work here was completed barely 6 months ago.

So, apart from the obvious poor quality of work done, why & how exactly did the Potholes occur?

A thread ~

en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pothole?w…
The Wikipedia post basically outlines the issues as a failure in the fabric of the road due to moisture beneath the road surface & fatigue from vehicle load.

The article points more at snow as being the moisture enabling culprit but we obviously don't have snow in these parts.
'Snow' may therefore be substituted for another firm of precipitation - rain (and subsequently water).
