no safety defect was found at that vist.gully is at lower level to encorage water to flow to drain to aliviate flooding. cycle lane is wide enough for cyclist not to have to ride next to kerb.
no further action required.
12 Nov 2014 - 17:33Report againReporterI'm disappointed by this decision.
Firstly, I don't think cyclists should have to avoid hazards in
cycle lanes. If they have significant hazards that we must avoid,
they're not fit for purpose.
This is a narrow cycle lane in the middle of a very busy
junction and the drain takes up nearly a third of the width.
Secondly, no more water will flow down a sunken drain than
one which is flush with the road surface, that's a red herring.

1 Dec 2014 - 13:10RejectedHighway authority[20 Nov] Our inspector has re visited the location and found the gully is not a safety hazard and is set lower in the carriageway to encourage rain water to enter the gully and alleviate flooding which occurs in this area.
No further action is required at this time.
