Large depression in surface

Reported via mobile in the Road surface (NH) category anonymously at 12:18, Wednesday 8 May 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5945933.

There is a large depression in the road surface on the hard shoulder and into lane 1. It is about 2 metres by 3 metres and is deep enough in lane 1 to cause vehicles to lurch. It has grown in depth and size in the last 2 weeks.

  • The depression is likely caused by a failed drain and is now so deep that vehicles are being knocked off track when they hit it. This is really dangerous and could cause a significant crash if an artic loses control when driving over it!!!!!!!!!

  • To anyone commenting on here, I phoned them and they said an engineer came out to look at it last week.

    They said they don't see these updates, so if is a hazard then give them a call and tell them to close the lane.

  • Depression still getting worse. This has happened before approx 15 - 20 years ago. Good chance of causing accidents

  • Hole is still there and difficult to avoid especially when towing a caravan. Will check tyres and submit a claim.
