Cyclists call for action to repair danger road

Local cyclists have been complaining about dangerous road defects on the road from the Shire Way roundabout to Westerleigh village. Some regular cyclists have stopped using this road because it's so bad.

As well as the potholes on the way into Westerleigh, there are "tramline" cracks that could catch a bike wheel near the Nibley Lane junction. Anyone falling off their bike just past this blind corner could be run over by a following car.

South Glos say that Westerleigh Road isn't bad enough to warrant resurfacing this year, but they aim to patch the worst areas some time this financial year. The Joint Cycleways Group has written saying that it's now urgent, and asking them to do the repairs within the next few weeks.
