Status Fixed
Location SD 49628 49086
Location Description Station Lane Scorton, outside the property "Wyre Bank". This is about a third of the way from the railway bridge to the river bridge.
Road Name Station Lane Scorton
Hazard Type Surface poorly restored after roadworks
Hazard Description Sunken patch. When the water main was replaced a few years ago holes were dug to connect each property to the new main. Most are fine but this one has sunk and there is now a hollow about three inches deep. It isn't obvious as the surface is not broken but it is a hell of a jolt when you hit it on a bike and could cause a cyclist to lose control and crash. See Photo.
