Location Description The Eastbound side of Great Preston Road just before the junction with the A3055
Road Name Great Preston Road
Hazard Type Other
Hazard Description The sensor to change the traffic lights is not detecting bicycles even when you ride over it several times and at 105kg you'd think it would detect me! In the daytime the road is busy so it's not a problem but late at night or very early morning it means you are forced to jump a red light or wait, sometimes for ages, until a motor vehicle comes along.
