Road surface degraded and unsafe for cycling, Church Place

Sent to Swindon Borough Council 3 minutes later

For several months now the surface of Church Place, eastbound carriageway, has degraded to the extent that underlying historical cobblestone surface is visible. The poor surface makes retaining control of a bicycle difficult as the handlebar jerks left and right and the front wheel bounces and deflects. This is a dangerous condition and opens the council to legal action if a rider is injured and sues.
