Dangerous road condition. URGENT

Please do something about the raised hump across all 3 lanes eastbound. The bridge joint is failing and has created a dangerous situation. It is akin to having a speed hump on a motorway, very dangerous. My car makes a thump when travelling across this and it can only be a matter of time before there is an accident. I fear for motorcyclists. I find it incredible that previous inspections have not considered this to be a concern. Please re-inspect urgently.
