A cycle path comes downhill on to Hazel Road here from the north. It's unlit (lights are installed but not connected). Someone has recently dug a trench about 8cm deep right across where you go from cycle path to road. It's unmarked, and will be completely unexpected, because until yesterday it was ramped. I don't know who is responsible for digging it, but since a cyclist is likely to be hitting it at 20mph it needs fixing urgently. I will also notify Persimmon, the developer of the Tilbury Fields estate.
