Uneven road surface

Nothing has been done to even out the road surface from the youth hostel to the railway bridge and beyond. It is an accident waiting to happen. With all the roadworks currently on the Botley Road, surely this could be fixed at same time. If you cycle down this road, you have to take extreme care not to hit the bumps in the road, otherwise you could fall off your bicycle. I know I nearly have several times. Please revisit this and don't give excuses this time. Thank you.

  • I sincerely hope you will do something about this terribly bumpy road surface. It has been made even more dangerous by all the water oozing from the walls at the side of the road. It needs a serious look at, with a view to improving the drainage too. I dread to think what it might be like on a really icy morning.
