I am writing to bring to your attention the considerably poor condition (lumpy)of the road between #23 Hackthorne Road and #37 Hackthorne Road. Also outside #53 there is another shuddering experience. I am a gardening contractor and 2 or 3 times a day I travel this route,and everytime I pass over this stretch of road my mowers nearly jump off the back of my truck. Potholes also continually appear in this section and continually they are repaired. Sometimes the same hole can be repaired up to twice a year. Also the other issue is the judder bars before the stop sign at the bottom of Hackthorne Road. I would have thought that between the 2010 National Cycling Champs and this years event they could have been repaired. A friend of my hit them with his bike early last year and spent 3 days in hospital. I feel that the whole of Hackthorne Road needs to be re surfaced, but particularly the section from the bottom up to Gwynfa Avenue.
