Road uneven caused car to elevate

I was travelling back towards Abingdon and exited the slip road at the Marcham Interchange and the road is so uneven that my car dip then rose and this was very dangerous as it felt the car almost about to fly off the road! I am sure this has potentially caused damaged to my car.

  • This dip is gradually worsening at over time, could be the start of a possible sink hole if it continues. Some cars are beginning to drive into the right hand lane and back into the left after to avoid it, not necessarily with warning. Have witnessed some vehicles swerve after hitting it as they haven’t been expecting it. Could easily cause someone to lose control, or serious damage to someone’s vehicle especially the speed you’ll drive off the a34 and not wanting to slam your brakes on when there’s others behind you.
