Dangerously narrow road at new junction

A new junction has been constructed on Shipton road. The road coming up to the junction has had new kerbs put in on either side of the road, this has lead to the road being too narrow. As seen through the photos people are constantly having to go up the high kerbs to avoid colliding other vehicles along here. It is only about wide enough for two cars, a van( constantly passing due to construction site next to location)or a bus (do pass regularly due to having a school nearby) lead to a dangerous potential collision. Once I had to go up to the kerb to avoid a collision and other people are having to do the same. Not to mention the extremely poorly constructed road surface with a huge jump/hill on one side of the road followed by several potholes afterwards. This is unacceptable and is a serious danger to many residents, school children and hundreds of people who work at the nearby construction site. This issue needs to be rectified as soon as possible before a serious collision occurs.
