  • This problem has become even worse with the heavy rain, making it very hard to see holes. Furthermore, this black gravel that arrived this week is very loose, even worse than what was there before, making the chances of slipping on a bike much higher.

  • Along Peep-O-Day Lane, outside the entrance to Oday Hill Quarry, the road surface has become very poor since some work was done to it recently (I think on Monday). This has resulted in lots of loose and uneven gravel and some large stones which, if hit, could easily cause someone to fall off their bike. This is especially dangerous at night, as there is no street lighting in this area.

  • This has deteriorated even further this week - even bigger puddles and potholes, and a lot of loose gravel as others are reporting here. Dangerous cycling conditions especially at night. Needs URGENT attention.
