Poor resurfacing around speed bumps - dangerous for cyclists

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later

Bretch Hill has been resurfaced which has improved the pothole situation and therefore increased safety for cyclists. However, the speed bumps have not been resurfaced and the new surface has not been leveled well with the original speed bump. The result is a dip/step or sometimes a gully before and after the speed bumps - some worse than others. This is still dangerous for cyclists like myself. At best someone will hit this with their bike tire at the wrong angle and damage their bike, at worst they will do this and the result will be that they come off their bike and injure themselves. I haven't taken photos but will do so if desired. The problem stretches for the entire length of Bretch Hill.

  • Thank you for your report. I have visited this location and found no issues or difference in level during my site visit. It is standard procedure not to tarmac over the speed bumps when laying a micro asphalt treatment as this would increase the height of the speed bump which we cannot do, as they need to conform to a specific height. The carriageway is much improved in this location and the white lining almost complete.
