I suppose the Thames Water contractors could be forgiven for overlooking the cycle cut through between Forster road and Low Hall lane. So when they finished their water mains work they put down a normal kerb stone in instead of a dropped kerb.
A WFcycling member spotted this, recognized the danger and alerted Thames Water. Thanks to Andrew at Thames Water it was fixed very swiftly and is made safe again.
Of course we would still like to see the cycle cut through rebuilt to the standard of the one just 100m further down the road at Essex road. If you want to support WFcycling on this, get in touch.
