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).

Here is a thread of environmental documentaries that I would pay you watch if I could.

I learned soooo much from this one. I honestly did not understand coral as a vital living thing that so much in our ocean is dependent on. It's helpful when talking to people about what will happen if we lose this precious piece of the system.

#Venus has strong associations with bubbles, because they bring joy, pleasure, and excitement, and are frequently used to mark happy occasions.
They are a literal representation of #effervescence, which is a #Venusian feature, and are often paired with #sugar (ruled by Venus), as in #soda, or used in #alcoholic beverages, which reduce social inhibitions and can stir the libidinal instincts.
For those reasons, #Venus is associated with #champagne, mineral water, and #bubbly drinks of all variety. They, along with #greentea, make great Venus #offerings.

🔴💦 Our #Mars Express satellite has detected liquid #water hidden under the planet’s south polar ice cap. Full story: esa.int/Our_Activities…
We know from orbiters, landers & rovers that #Mars had a wet past, with its vast dried out river channels & minerals that can only form in liquid #water, but it is not stable on the surface anymore, so scientists are looking underground…
Until now evidence from the #Mars Express radar experiment MARSIS, the first radar sounder ever to orbit another planet, remained inconclusive. A new operating mode generating higher-quality data was needed to seek out better evidence for buried #water...

#Israel will never recognize #Palestine,illegal segregated settlements in the #WestBank keep growing & #Gaza is a #ConcentrationCamp.
THE 2-STATE SOLUTION FACADE ENABLES #ISRAEL TO CLAIM THEY'RE A DEMOCRACY,allowing settlers in the occupied territories to vote & #Palestinians not
#Netanyahu:"I Deceived the #US to Destroy Oslo Accords"
#Israel never wanted peace,they already occupy #Palestine, only maintain the 2-state solution topic alive so they don't have to let Palestinians vote while claiming to be a Democracy.
