The bridge deck joint bitumen is raised significantly like a sleeping policeman. Hitting that at 70mph cause a significant impact to the tyres and must risk a puncture - deadly at high speed. This issue has been ongoing for some weeks and needs urgent attention.

  • Just to add (different person), this issue has been going on for a number of months, maybe even over a year now. This section of road is very dangerous and needs addressing.
