  • Thank you for contacting Highways England about the surface condition of the carriageway on the A40.

    We are aware of this and our inspectors do not currently consider these defects as safety critical.

    Repair works are planned for November, barring any unforeseen delays.

    In the mean time we have erected uneven road signs and will continue to monitor the condition on our weekly safety inspections and may intervene if there is further deterioration before the resurfacing is delivered.

    We hope this answers your enquiry. If you have any further queries, please contact our Customer Contact Centre on 0300 123 5000 or

    Kind regards Highways England
