48211Photo #48211Sequence of potholes, severely degraded road surface and broken surface-water drain cover – High Street, Bassingbourn, SG8 5NE.

Broken broken surface-water drain cover outside Nº 22.

Sequence of potholes and severely degraded road surface stretch along the carriageway outside Nºs 22 – 10 High Street.

Proximity of primary school and village college, heavy volumes of pedestrian, cycle and motor traffic at school starting and finishing times, the youth and inexperience of cyclists and scooterists using route at time of peak traffic are aggravating features.

These stretches could unseat young cyclists or put them in danger as they swerve to avoid the hazards.

Broken surface-water drain cover outside Nº 22 could cause serious injury if/when it collapses.

Additionally hazardous by being hidden around a left-hand bend.

Particularly, given the proximity of a primary school and of the village college, the heavy volumes of pedestrian, cycle and motor traffic at school starting and finishing times and the youth and inexperience of young cyclists using this route at its time of peak traffic these two items could unseat young cyclists or put them in danger as they swerve in then out to avoid the hazards.

Vehicular traffic has been observed swerving to avoid the severely degraded/broken road surface around the surface-water drain cover. Creating addition danger to oncoming cyclists attempting to avoid hazard #48208

48206Photo #48206Carriageway surface of Elm Street, Cambridge, CB1 1EJ at junction with Jesus Terrace/Clarendon Street.

A number of potholes have developed and others are developing through 'crocodile' cracking – mainly – but not wholly – associated with three re-surfaced utility trenches.

Earlier patch repair has been only partially effective.

Potential unseating hazard to cyclists which could lead to injury accident.

Many students of nearby Parkside Community College cycle along this street, and street is on advertised cycle route.

48152Photo #48152From www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/CMSWebsite/Apps/Highways/TrackProblem.aspx the current status of this fault is shown as 'completed'.

Hmm... As one hole is patched, another opens.

The section of carriageway showing 'crocodile' cracking outside Nºs 81–95 Mill Road is about to develop into a sequence of dangerous potholes.

A Stagecoach passenger information notice, attached to the nearby bus stop, advises that some work on the highway is scheduled.

Will this be a more thorough repair of this set of defects?

48147Photo #48147Collapsing carriageway surface in Gonville Place at 'Hyde Park Corner', Cambridge (junction with Regent Street). Defect shows up clearly in recently-updated Google StreetView.

Defect will be subject to constant pounding/vibration from near-side wheels of most NE-bound (Grafton Centre-bound) vehicles.

Because of position on trajectory of pedal-cyclists and length/depth, it could unseat pedal-cyclist or contribute to injury accident from swerving.

Although plans are advancing for re-modelling of this junction, urgent amelioration of hazard is needed.

Street caters for more traffic than might be realised because of adjacent no entry and one-way streets and nearby mosque.
