The only way to avoid the hazard and any damage to your vehicle is by moving across to the oncoming carriageway. Please kindly reinvestigate as a matter of urgency. This has been deteriorating for months now without any attention.

  • I think you may be looking at the wrong piece of road?? The damage is quite severe and noticeable when driving over the manhole on the northbound carriageway. It is much worse than other places that have been addressed. Severe jolting caused to vehicles when driving over this piece of road.
