Road Name Lache Lane, Chester
Hazard Type Pothole
Hazard Description Deepening hole on road repair in direct line of cycle trajectory exiting roundabout. Bike has to occupy lane to avoid it but it is not easy to see and motorist does not appreciate the hazard. I nearly got taken out by a car on Saturday who tried to overtake at the pothole. Cars come fast round this corner, traffic is controlled by lights and cars come in groups often driving very close.
