The cycleway is 38 km from Prestons to Old Windsor Rd, so one end and back makes 76 km. Maybe you did 7 km to and fro the start ?
I haven't noticed any worrying cracks south of Westlink office. North of Deans Park there are some poorly designed pit lids. Some have been vandalised (e.g. the one Rockford came to grief on), others abutting the motorway concrete fences just look like they've always had nasty gaps.
Cycling over the pit lids is a bit risky - like stepping on footpath cracks, it's best avoided. Since Rockford's stack, Westlink have been busy filling bitumen gaps (heaps of new bitumen snakes). Maybe that makes it look like there's a bigger problem than it is.
