Heysham bypass road surface – what’s it like now?

Cyclists on the Heysham bypass road (in particular, by the second roundabout as you are coming from Heysham) will have noticed earlier this year that the already-narrow cycle lane was covered in potholes and lumps of concrete.

County Councillor Gina Dowding followed this up with the county officers and was reassured (two months after checking!) that surface works were due to be completed and that the cycle lane would be rideable again.

Dynamo hasn’t been on that road for a while.  Does anyone have an update on it?

    There’s no evidence of any works being carried out whatsoever, the potholes are still there! There’s also plenty of dirt, stones & debris seemingly coming from the site of the new substation to add to the hazardous road conditions!

  2. OK, we’ll look into it. Thank you for letting us know.

    Surface of road chipped but not cycle strip. Still unrideable. Also bushes overhanging side of road, making it vary difficult to ride but on main carriage way!
