Poor road surface

Reported via desktop in the Road surface (NH) category anonymously at 08:09, Sun 2 January 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3209738.

The road surface on the driving lane between Clevedon Junction 20 Northbound to Juntion 19 Portbury, is in a poor state. Numerous temporary attempts to improve this section have been made, but the road surface for approx. 2 miles is very poor. Many bumps and divets. This has been like this for over a year and I use this stretch of the motorway daily. At times if safe to do so, I drive in the second lane. Please can something be done about this.

Thanks Mr Julian David
