It may be a while before anyone uses the road in question on a bike but be warned.
On the A272 Westbound between Midhurst and the Stedham/Minsted crossroads there is a very dangerous pothole. It is about 16 Inches long by 5 inches wide by 6 inches deep. It is right on the natural riding line, and threw my car badly to one side. I dread to think what it could do to a bike. There is also serious crumbling of the westbound carriageway on a inclined right hand bend on same road at Trotton, next to the Gamekeepers arms pub.
So if you use this road, and those who do will know the places I mentioned, then please keep em peeled.
