This has been reported before, but is reported again because it is getting worse - one of the slumped areas is now extending into the middle of the South bound carriageway.

  • As of 19/09/2019, when I last used this road, the problem not fixed. (Was reported last year . . . and ignored) So if, by chance, you're looking for funds for a new vehicle and contemplating writing-off your old car to get the deposit for a new one, with a third party taking the financial hit ,this is the place to do it.
