A1 Nr Long Bennington - precise location not identified. Severe pothole in southbound nearside lane.
Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 21:58, Saturday 29 May 2021
Sent to Highways England less than a minute later
Hit this long pothole at 70mph. No warning given. Very severe shock to vehicle.
THIS NEEDS ADDRESSING AS A MATTER OF URGENCY as it will result in vehicular damage and may lead to an accident if drivers try to avoid it.
As a minimum a temporary speed restriction should be imposed.
Hit this about 30 minutes later. No warning, couldn't see it due to failing light. This is an accident waiting to happen.

I hit this at 70mph today and I can honestly say it was the worse pothole incident of my 50 years driving. It is long and deep and wrenched my steering wheel violently. It has been reported here several times and it is an accident waiting to happen. Shame on Highways England if they do not address this urgently.

Thank you for contacting Highways England about A1 road surface.
We are aware of this and repair works are planned. Our inspector continues to monitor on his safety patrols and arranges to have any repairs carried out on a ad-hoc basis.
We will provide a further update to confirm when the work has been completed.
Kind regards Highways England
