This road is not gritted and is very dangerous in the winter due to too much surface water ion the road. Please can you re dig the drainage ditches. I ride a bike on this road all winter, for the past six years and it has never been addressed. It's incredibly dangerous. It will also save you money as the surface water causes potholes.

  • The section of road between the trees is very uneven- the top tarmac has disintegrated and is broken and the road is full of potholes. It is very dangerous for cyclists and even driving through necessitates reducing speed to 10mph unless you want to break you car
