Lane 1 very bad sagged bridge joint,

Reported via mobile in the Structures (eg bridges, fencing, noise barriers) (NH) category anonymously at 18:27, Sun 11 June 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4658018.

I pass the problem every week, it has got much worse. From j39 inside lane on the first bridge. I think it's a sagging bridge joint. It is now getting to be a major problem especially at high speed.
