  • Met this one today and it isn't a new issue... I've been living in the area for 8+ years and travelled that route often... the issues is at site as you crest the bridge and should not be in the middle of the road to miss what you know is there - thus you have to risk the damage to your own vehicle... don't half hit that hole with a thump even at slow speeds...
