I reported this problem a few weeks ago and it has been ignored or not deemed to be a priority. There are multiple very deep potholes on this slip way. As you know the slipway is very short 150ft of useful distance to get to 30 as you come around the corner to at least 60 to match traffic speed and enters onto a very busy section of road at peak times especially. It is very dangerous to be trying to enter this road whilst looking over you shoulder and having giant holes in front of you that will stop your momentum and possible cause traction issues. Please can you acknowledge this need sorting before there are broken wheels and accidents. There is no hard shoulder here or a safe place to stop (for 1 mile) should the wheel be damaged and the tyre goes flat.
Thank you for your report concerning potholes on this A34 slip road.
I can confirm that we've carried out an emergency make-safe repair in the area, and are regularly monitoring the road for further degradation due to heavy acceleration by road users. Any further safety critical defects will be logged for emergency repairs as required.
