Cum­brian gravel gripe

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Be­ware; the Cum­brian High­way Depart­ment have been resur­fac­ing parts of the Hart­side Pass route (A686). Us­ing the cheaper op­tion, with lit­tle re­gard for the safety of road users, they have poured in tar and scat­tered some gravel and called it job done. The re­sult­ing piles of loose gravel are a dan­ger to car driv­ers, nev­er­mind the bik­ers and coast-to-coast cy­clists. To ab­solve them­selves of blame there is a scat­ter­ing of sig­nage ad­vis­ing of loose chip­pings and skid risk with an ad­vi­sory 20mph – health & safety box ticked. Alexan­der Lid­dle, email
