Trench capping subsidence on both carriageways at 184A Cumnor HIll

The subsidence is particularly bad on the nearside of the eastbound carriageway. There is also an area of subsidence next to the centre line of the westbound carriageway.
This is one of several trenches whose capping has subsided that are located within a few tens of feet of each other. They are a real nuisance to cyclists, because they generate a series of unpleasant jolts when they are crossed.
As someone who cycles the full length of Cumnor Hill both ways every day, I would like to point out the necessity of ensuring that the road surface is fit for road users on two wheels as well, not just cars and larger vehicles. This means, for example, making good extended eroded areas and subsided trench coverings, not just deep holes or ruts.
