Really bad ramps

Reported via mobile in the Bridge or Structure category anonymously at 08:58, Sat 3 October 2020

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 377432.

This bridge has two very dangerous ramps either end.

The risk to damage your car is quite high considering the speed limit of 60mph.

Drivers who are not aware tailgate you when you are slowing down leading to dangerous overtaking while on the bridge.

To put this in perspective for you as this as been reported several times and has been there for a number of years and nothing to do with the pandemic in terms of delay, with it being a 60mph road, I have to slow down near enough to 20mph because my car is quite low down.

I could risk damaging the underside of my car and suspension.

Travelling at this speed in a 60 zone is dangerous but I have no choice and it leads to impatient drivers near enough being in your boot as there is no consideration.

Is this actually going to get sorted as you can't keep using the pandemic as an excuse as that is wearing thin and considering this has been a problem way before covid was a thing, you can't use that as an excuse when it is putting people's life at risk due to the severity.

  • Is this going to be sorted as it is dangerous considering how much you have to slow down to avoid damage which also causes people tailgating because they dont know how bad it is and puts peoples lifes at risk.

  • I've reported this as well, this needs to be escalated if LCC continue to refuse to rectify the issue. It is so dangerous and I echo the person's concerns above!
