Road still to dangerous to ride on

Reported anonymously at 09:09, Wed 6 June 2018

Days after your cheap fix this road is still so dangerous. You need to send someone down to inspect it. The problems with it are 1. Huge swathes of gravel making it terrible unsafe to ride on - most notably at the bottom of Iffley Turn where it is unrideable 2. Due to the wallpapering over the cracks approach the dip to the kerb-site especially on the descent down from the rose hill co-op to the top of Iffley turn is much higher now - this is a real danger to cyclists on a stretch of road where drivers push cyclists into the cycle-lane. A cyclist will slip down this 3-4 inch slope and fall into the traffic. 3. The level of dust on the road in the morning due to the unfinished nature of the work is dangerous to cyclists and pedestrians - I have tried to show this in the photos - you need to visit this in the morning, it is choking. 4. The ridges in the 'tarmac' created by the busses especially when they are going up hill make the surface like something from the outback in New Zealand with speed ridges round the corners. Please send someone to visit this site, ideally at 8.30am on a work day and you will see what a terrible impact this woefully inadequate piece of road 'repair' is having on cyclists lives. I know road repair is expensive but as a Cycling City we really should be making a sustainable road network, not short term patches which make cycling less attractive and more dangerous.
