A road in Welwyn Garden City has been closed following reports of an uneven surface.

Bridge Road East was closed this morning, near to Kwik Fit, after drivers noticed a dip in the road surface.

The surface of the road sparked an online discussion with some thinking that the uneven surface is the beginning of a sink hole.

A Facebook user asked: “What’s with the big dip in the road just passed garage just before lights going over town seems to have sunk more than it was yesterday.”

Another person said: “I think I’m going to avoid that road from now on I don’t want to disappear down a sink hole.”

Someone even claimed their exhaust is now hanging off because of the road.
