Series of dangerous potholes

Reported in the Road surface category anonymously at 16:54, Friday 19 June 2020

Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

Most of this slip needs resurfacing. Dangerous series of holes where new surface has washed away exposing old surface 2 inches down in many places and continuing onto M20 going uphill. This has been a problem for months rather than weeks. How long to wait for a fix?, DANGEROUS IN WET OR DARK ESP FOR 2 WHEELERS and damaging to car suspension/tyres too. Not the standard of surface expected on any road let alone a motorway. Highways Agency, safety is your top priority according to your website, except where it isn't seemingly!!

  • Usual lack of care/attention from Highways England. Looks like a farm track. How long to wait for a fix? Another 3 months like the M25 Jct 4 slip.Oh yes lets use Covid as an excuse for our uselessness and inactivity! "Safety our top concern" says the website:pull the other one matey!!

  • Highways England tell me this is not a safety issue!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They also tell me their entire network is inspected weekly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Something seriously wrong here.

  • After months of denial that there was a problem a fix of sorts. Usual poor quality and half a job. Have you looked up the road to the gullies between lane 1 and 2 100 meters from the entrance of the slip to the main M20? Weekly carriageway inspections,my backside!

    State changed to: Fixed
