Back to all reports

Between the junctions of 54 and 55 there are several large lumps in the road which are over patched repair works or over sections where there is a bridge under the A14. These cause the car to make a terrible lump and bang as you drive over them- this is a 70mph speed limit and unavoidbale to slow down for them as you cant see them until you get level to them. These have been like this for a while now are going to cause serious damage to cars that have to travel over them every day. Please fix them.

These lumps in the road have been here for several months and appear to be getting a lot worse. When you drive over them the hole car shakes and rattles and lumps onto the road. They are unavoidable as you cant see them until you get level with them, and they are across the full width of the lanes. They need to be fixed please.

  • I have driven Eastbound between J53-55 along this section of A14 and now have a flat spot on my alloy wheel! These humps are stupidly big, but my tyres are low, sport profile, so it has damaged my wheel and I was only doing 60mph!!!

    One of the humps even looks like it was put there deliberately!!!! Where can I make a claim for a new wheel?
