ID #39409
Status Reported
Location SU 59312 90539
Location Description Drain covers from Wantage Road at junction of A4130 for its whole length ,including Station Road to its junction with Croft Road.
Road Name Wantage road ,Wallingford
Hazard Type Raised/sunken manhole or drain
Hazard Description A great number of drain covers in cycle lane pose a real hazard to cyclists,for the whole section of this road.
The risk to cyclists has in my opinion increased since the recent introduction of traffic humps,as cars move towards the kerb in order to minimise contact with the hump. This could coincide with a cyclist move to the right in order to avoid holes around drains.
