Hazard #701

ID #701
Status Fixed
Location SJ 35606 72925
Location Description Between Woodbank Lane and Yacht Inn on south west edge of road where resurfacing has recently taken place.
Road Name A540
Hazard Type Surface poorly restored after roadworks
Hazard Description The new white line marking edge of roadwhere resurfacing has taken place is proud and interferes with cycle steering. I nearly came off my cycle - and this on a narrow section of a busy road.

Also when wet, the surface of the white line is greasy presumably because of the falls of leaves etc. from the vegetation that overhangs this stretch.

I was so concerned that I warned members of my club about it and know of others who have encountered this hazard.
Approximate Size Standard width of white line x about 150 metres
Approximate Depth
Approximate distance from Kerb Standard distance, I suppose, for such lines.
Date Encountered 6 Dec 2006
