  • These holes are getting worse and because the bridge is one way cause a hazrd in both directions and are suffering extra wear due to the double traffic. on a bike in the dark the one on the Shillingford side of the bridge is perfectly placed and sized to cause a cyclist accident, epscially as it is on their appropriate line.
