Location Description Just beyond where the cycle route leaves the tarmac road built on the former railway line about 350m west of Shanklin station
Road Name Shanklin to Wroxall old railway line
Hazard Type Other
Hazard Description Muddy area across the whole width of the cycletrack. This and other muddy areas render the cycle route from Wroxall to Shanklin station useless for commuting or school journeys. In this and many other areas the problem seems to be a combination of poor drainage, poor surface and damage from 4x4s using the cycletrack illegally, tyre tracks are visible and there is nothing to prevent them.
Approximate Size about 3.5m wide and 8m in length
