After road resealing recently, there is an excessive amount of gravel/chip on the road edge at the approach to Wairakei Bridge when heading to Taupo. The gravel is about 15m x 0.5m and 5-10cm deep. I think this is a significant risk to cyclists using this route. That is, a risk for cyclists to lose control on loose gravel on a busy road with speed limit of 100km/h. Can you please arrange for the gravel to be removed?
