Dangerous road ignored by council
I AM flabbergasted that Bucks County Council have seen fit this week to re-surface part of the stretch of Chesham Road in Amersham between the Boot & Slipper roundabout and Oakfield corner.
At the same time they are ignoring a hugely dangerous road the other side of Oakfield Corner – namely Hill Avenue.
Chesham Road had hardly any significant breaches of the road surface, whereas, particularly in the northerly direction, the whole of the road surface in Hill Avenue is a treacherous minefield not only for motorists but much more importantly cyclists.
There are many such users who commute to and from Amersham Station via Hill Avenue.
Now that the evenings are dark and with the street lighting being abysmal, cycling up Hill Avenue is a total lottery as to whether a large hole in the road surface is going to knock a cyclist off course and into the path of oncoming or following vehicles.
How long do we have to wait for Hill Avenue to be re-surfaced? Will it only happen after a cyclist’s fatality finally shames Bucks County Council into action?
