Unroadworthy road

Reported via desktop in the Road surface category anonymously at 08:15, Sunday 25 April 2021

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

The surface of the road is littered with potholes and dangerous ruts and crevices. Unsafe for 2 wheeled vehicles and unsafe for car users swerving to avoid potholes. This is over a large area from prior to the lorry lay-by/ truck stop to the alwalton turn slip road. This has been in this condition for over 6 moths and gradually getting worse.

  • Thank you for contacting Highways England about the road conditions on the A1.

    We are aware of the condition and we are organising a minor capital intervention to take place during the summer months.

    At present I don’t have a date programmed for this repair but we anticipate to have it delivered by July.

    Make safe repairs will be undertaken routinely to the areas that need it as highlighted part of our safety inspections.

    We will provide a further update to confirm when the work has been completed.

    Kind regards Highways England
