There is a large bump which goes across the motorway (M42 J3 and J3a north/eastbound). Although noticeable in lanes 1 and 2, it is significantly worse in lane 3 and may be dangerous to motorcyclists. The bump is between the overhead gantry and the railway lane that runs underneath the motorway. About 300 metres after 16.4 marker board.

  • The bump in the outside lane is STILL there. I went over it on my motorcycle yesterday, and it threw me out of the saddle. How long is this going to take ? Until someone gets hurt, or worse ?
