Location SP 40116 62827
Location Description Deeply rutted verge on Welsh Road West, between Bascote Heath and where the road crosses the river Itchen.
Road Name Welsh Road West
Hazard Type Unevenness due to rut or gully
Hazard Description Deeply rutted verge between Bascote Heath and where the road crosses the river Itchen. Once a cycle wheel gets into the rut (easy, considering the narrow road and heavy diverted traffic) it's impossible to get out. This has caused me to fall off my bike (thankfully into the hedge rather than the road).
