  • Across all three lanes, road surface is poor. Joint of railway bridge appears to be lifting. More like a sleeping policeman at 70mph.

  • This is still there. We hit it in the fast lane and it broke our rear suspension. Holiday ruined but it could kill a motorcyclist. I suspect this is damaging cars all day long. Reported 2 weeks ago but needs to be fixed as an immediate priority as it's extremely dangerous.

  • I hit this yesterday in the fast lane, felt like I hit a curb in the road. Whole car bounced into the air and I had to slow down and make sure it hadn't damaged anything. Miraculously I haven't found any damage but this has to be the worst thing I've driven over
