Location Description Lancaster On Bridge Lane/ Cable Street at the junction with Damside Street
Road Name
Hazard Type Raised/sunken manhole or drain
Hazard Description The large iron manhole (Telecom?) at this junction is very uneven and dangerous for cyclists coming fast down Bridge lane trying to keep up with the heavy traffic. The tarmac round the manhole is breaking up badly yet again. This manhole is in a stupid place as the tarmac round it is bound to be scrubbed badly by HGVs coming out of Damside street.
