Ground has dips a foot deep, I pulled in this morning and luckily was in a large van. A small car would have had the suspension ripped off, someone travelling at speed would die, please sort the surface out immediately.

  • Thank you for contacting Highways England.

    Our inspector has reviewed this issue recently and have found that this is not actually a designated layby.

    We do not authorise the use and any vehicles using this as there are no signs indicating it is.

    Our service delivery managers are going to discuss a proposal to stop drivers using this as a layby as this is dangerous for anyone accelerating onto the A47 from this area.
