The road, one of the main routes into the city centre, was partially coned-off, creating an infuriating chicane for bus and car drivers and causing long tailbacks.
The huge dip in the road, three feet across and almost one foot deep, had been endangering both drivers and pedestrians, as many motorists were swerving out of their lane to avoid damaging their suspension.
The crater is the latest in a litany of holes highlighted by the Evening Times in our ongoing Pothole Watch campaign, which aims to help remedy Glasgow's problem roads.
But as one problem was fixed, news of another was emerging.
A manhole at busy junction of Bothwell Street and Wellington Street appears to be sinking into the ground.
Melanie Friel, from Clarkston, parks her car on Wellington Street and finds driving over the potholes a problem.
The 39-year-old support worker said: "This one is pretty dangerous."
"My previous car's exhaust had problems because of potholes, and the repairs cost about £400."
Melanie was also concerned about the state of the city's roads for cyclists and motorcyclists, as her husband rides a motorcycle.
She added: "The potholes can be a real danger to them."
Glasgow City Council maintained the sinking manhole was the responsibility of a leading utility company.
The Evening Times is making inquiries to find out who should repair to the dangerous crater.
In the last four years, claims for vehicles damaged by potholes has gone up by more than 800%.
Glasgow City Council has spent millions on the upkeep of our roads, including more than £335,000 in compensation payouts for damaged vehicles.
But many drivers believe the work the council has done on the roads isn't good enough, with many temporary repairs giving way within a matter of weeks.
James Morrison, 54, a health service worker from Barrhead, said: "I think the roads are pretty poor.
"A lot of it is to do with the bad weather we suffer, but I think the council could do more."
