Hazard Description Large area of subsidence in the left hand lane. The area is about 5 metres in length and covers the entire lane. The depth is significant although the road surface is still unbroken. The danger is that this is a 70mph stretch and I have personally witnessed articulated lorries begin to fishtail when hitting it. I have seen cars bounce and lose control and stiff suspension vehicles such as large vans are also affected when hitting this at road speed.
