  • DIP GETTING BIGGER - This still has not been repaired and before long will start damaging tyres. People are pulling out to miss it and driving on the wrong side of the road on a blind corner. I have had to swerve to miss two cars as they were on the wrong side coming towards me. This may not seem much to look at but when you hit this in a normal car it hurts.
