Location NS 94661 20536
Location Description On approach to the roundabout from the East.
Road Name A702
Hazard Type Other
Hazard Description The approach to the roundabout from the East has a considerable amount of oil on the road. I hit this unexpectedly and the oil caused me to slide off my bike as I crossed the roundabout. I grazed my knee and elbow and was very lucky that no vehicles were around at the time of the accident or it could have been much worse. This is not so much a spillage as a long term build-up I think.
