Road deteriorated on chiltern cycle path - Dangerous

Reported in the Potholes category anonymously at 12:29, Fri 30 August 2019

Sent to Hertfordshire County Council 1 minute later

As part of the Chiltern Cycle path the route encourages recreational cyclists and families on this road. As a common cut through for motorists the road deterioration is forcing cyclist across the road to avoid the dangerous part of the road into on coming traffic or gravel side, both of which are dangerous.

This road continues to get worse with no action taken.

  • Although the Highways agency has visited the site the inconsistent/secretive manner of assessment has been applied and deemed not requiring attention.

    The route is part of the Chiltern Cycle route and only this morning again I and a poor cyclist were confronted as they attempted to avoid the gauntlet.

    I guess the highways agency are waiting some poor cyclist get hit or remove their front teeth till they take action!

  • Holes are getting worse and I cycled the road last week and lucky I did not go over the handlebars given the worsening condition
