Road Name A40
Hazard Type Surface poorly restored after roadworks
Hazard Description £11m spent on upgrading the road and 2 roundabouts here, only to leave the road connecting them a total mess. Multiple, large area potholes caused by the whole top surface detaching.
~2 months after completion, the road is partially closed again to fix ~50% of these, leaving holes right next to fixed ones. Unbelievable. Some potholes have been literally half fixed leaving new sharper edge.
