Serious road subsidence for at least half a kilometre stretch of this road
Reported in the Road surface issue category anonymously at 17:42, Sat 30 March 2019
Sent to Lincolnshire County Council 13 minutes later. Council ref: 349573.
There is serious subsidence for at least half a kilometre mainly on the southbound carriageway, but also on the northbound carriageway slightly further south. Cars are being forced into the middle of the road due to the deep subsidence. I have concerns vehicles, motorcyclists and cyclists could loose control of their vehicles if they hit the subsided road, possibly causing them to leave the road or cause an RTA. Even when driving at slow speed, it is difficult to avoid the damage, also the damage is not obvious and their are no warning signs or speed restrictions for the affected part of the road. There are scrapes in the road where it has subsided, indicating vehicles are bottoming out on their suspension. Please assess this damage before a serious accident occurs and put measures in place to warn road users of the subsidence until the damage to the road surface is restored. I am aware this damage has been here for at least 4 months

This fault still needs urgent attention. HGVs heading towards Langrick / river witham are being thrown around as you drive past them with their trailers weaving towards oncoming traffic. The road surface is dangerously subsided and there will be an accident if left unrepaired.

This subsidence is worsening and there will be a serous accident with an HGV travelling at 60 mph being thrown off line into oncoming traffic. This is an urgent requirement BEFORE somebody is killed on their way to work as winter approaches. This has been left for too long and the small ‘bumpy road’ warning signs are not helping matters.

This dangerous stretch of road needs urgent attention. I reiterate that there will be a fatality on one of these dark rainy mornings if this isn't repaired soon. It is extremely scary when lorries are swaying into oncoming traffic due to the subsidence.

Please investigate this issue as the subsidence is getting worse by the day. It has been reported numerous times but appears to have been ignored, surely it shouldn't take an accident until some investigation is carried out. Please at least carry out a risk assessment and place speed restrictions and warning signs along the affected area so people are aware of the damage so they can reduce there speed accordingly. Road safety should be a high priority

This problem has not gone away...indeed the lane heading towards New York is beginning to crack and open up near the chicken farm. This stretch of the B1192 needs completely relaying
