Road Name Potterrow
Hazard Type Surface poorly restored after roadworks
Hazard Description Roughly 1.5mx3m section of repaired tarmac, from the kerb to the middle of the lane in a marked bus stop box. Patch has sunken below the main surface level and broken free at the edges to create a drop down, and a steeper step back up in the direction of travel. Perhaps 5cm deep, but enough to throw me over the handle bars when I rode across it unexpectedly in the dark.

Approximate Depth 5cm
