Its the problem with the expressway. It was reported in the papers a lot of times as well. The construction material is not supportive enough to speeds in excess of 80-100 kmph.

I was on 120-140 in my Getz on the same road a couple of days ago. Had exactly the same problem as described by you. Lowering the speed to 100 or less made it (almost) disappear.

One of my co-passengers then reminded me about a couple of tyre burst incidents (mostly non-tubeless tyres) and other such things on the expressway due to faulty/non-compliant construction material used. Thats why it is advisable not to cross 80-100 kmph on that road.
