Loampit Roundabout - Surface Is Terrible

Over the weekend, they "morphed" Loampit Roundabout into a new jelly shape. Fair enough, its going to change anyway, nowt can do about that.

However, the road surface for the new layout is appalling. It is rough, the transitions are already breaking up, there are severe level changes and the shape itself is not great if you are a cyclist.

Whilst I appreciate that it is a temporary layout (for about a year still!), it is still highly dangerous for cyclists who whilst they should be concentrating on the traffic coming from all directions, need to also keep a very sharp eye on the road ahead of them.

I urge cyclists to use https://reportit.tfl.gov.uk to get TFL to force the contractors to do something about the quality of the road around this very busy intersection.

Not impressed
