Badly danaged surface

Reported via desktop in the Road surface (NH) category anonymously at 09:07, Friday 16 February 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5584860.

On the A56 northbound between the Grane Road exit and Todd Hall Road there are a large number of serious road defects. In several places these have developed into trenches running along the length of the carriageway. These defects have been there for several months and are continuing to deteriorate. They present a danger to all traffic, and especially to vehicles on 2 wheels.

  • Still lots of craters (not potholes now) on this stretch of road from Tesco roundabout Haslingden bypass A56 northbound to Rising Bridge. Extremely dangerous now.
