Very steep dips in the road that cause severe discomfort.

Sent to Highways England 18 hours, 34 minutes later

There are multiple steep dips in the road that cause severe discomfort to drivers. At the current speed limit, this road surface is majorly unsafe and a temporary speed limit needs to be put in place if the repair works will take time to organise. At night ,the bumps in the road cause motorists headlights to raise which misleads motorists waiting at the junction thinking that they are being given right of way. This is an accident waiting to happen and something needs to be done urgently. I’ve been involved in many near misses and now avoid that area simply due to the road surface.
