Very Uneven Road Surface - Like a Speed Bump! - Northbound Outside & Middle Lane after Jct 7

Reported via desktop in the Road surface (NH) category anonymously at 00:34, Sat 7 October 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5070989.

Heading northbound after Jct 7 and after the bridge heading downhill on the straight stretch of road (where the pin drop is) - There is a raised surface in the outside & middle lanes - effectively creating a speed bump in the faster lanes on the highway. This is causing damage to tyres & suspension on low-profile cars and all cars in general. Cars dangerously slowly down as well.

This needs to be evened out and fully resurfaced as a matter of urgency as this has been growing for years. In honesty, the whole section in the outside & middle lanes between Jct 7 & 6 needs to be resurfaced.
