Cyclists in Southampton are taking their lives in their hands when riding along some of the bumpy roads, especially in the city centre along Above Bar Street near the Guildhall.

One grandmother has threatened to sue the Council if something is not done about the uneven paving which is lethal for cyclists as bicycle wheels get caught in the pot holes causing cyclists to come off or collide with other road users.

The Southern Daily Echo reported in June that the Council is being urged to fix the roads and the Highways Manager has said they are currently designing a scheme to resolve the problems. The Council proposes to completely repair the area once the first phase of the Arts Complex construction has been completed. No date was given so cyclists beware of the hidden dangers.
