Road Name Ashby Road
Hazard Type Surface poorly restored after roadworks
Hazard Description Ramp constructed of compressed asphalt. placed to provide ramp up to new "Sage" housing rather than a dropped kerb. is ok for vehicles entering the properties - but for cyclist the ramp is difficult to see in poor light and a big hazard - Really needs to be replaced with Dropped Kerbs for access.
Aswell as this - as work was done on new houses - the cycelane was narrowed then burnt out!
