I remember years ago when they resurfaced roads they used to get the rollers out and do a proper job.
Now they chuck loose chippings on the top and expect the traffic to do that job. Which is great if you're in a Chelsea tractor (i am not).
Yes I know they put up 20mph warning signs but even at that speed you can still hear the stuff bouncing off your bike.
But to cap it all off I went for a spin up a particular local dual carriageway - first time for ages since that treatment was done and all the chippings had gone - and it looked as though someone had dragged a rake up it - thin permanent wavey lines in the road that were enough to make the bike wander alarmingly at speeds below the national limit!
Not being funny, but that was dangerous. How long will this penny-pinching method of road resurfacing survive? Until someone loses control and dies from it. That's how long.
I would write to my MP but MP's are useless at listening to bikers, the plebs.
Anyone else in the UK experience this? It's not all roads round here that are affected, but a dual-carriageway seems a particularly risky road to use it on.
Note to the Council: Sort it you plebs.
