  • The road is still in a poor condition.

    2 vehicles passing at even below 40mph can be bounced into the path of each other.

    Very dangerous!

    The edges of the road need leveling as it is sinking along the majority of the stretch of road in BOTH directions.

    Next inspection needs to try passing other cars at 40+ then say its still safe!
