Loose debris on carriageway

Reported via mobile in the Pothole (NH) category anonymously at 08:00, Tuesday 7 May 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5939127.

A120 travelling between Dunmow and Stansted Airport. Carriageway has severe deterioration, potholes and loose debris.

My windscreen was smashed last night due to your poorly maintained carriageway. Some stones were flicked up into my path from a speeding overtaking vehicle. My vehicle has been damaged and I hold highways UK responsible.

Please advise what you are doing with the £695 road fund I paid in full in March?

Please repair and resurface this stretch of road immediately.

I may take legal action to recover the cost of my windscreen from you. I will be passing these details to my insurance company.
