There is a dangerous drain ditch right beside the shared use cycle path on the river side of the Lower Hutt Riverbank Car Park. The ditch is very close to the path and not obvious on approach. As this is a narrow path a cyclist could easily ride off or be forced off the cycle path by other cyclists, pedestrians or dogs. Today I witnessed a spectacular non-injury cycle accident when a cyclist strayed slightly off the path straight into the ditch. Fortunately the bike dropped away and the cyclist landed on the ground on the far side of the ditch. This drain ditch needs to be sign posted, covered or fenced off.
