This windy section of single-track road, popular with cyclists and serving local residents a school bus route, drops down across the Clay House Burn. There is limited visibility in both directions. Heavy vehicles have worn away the verges at the edges of the bends pulling mud onto the road surface and creating significant skid hazards as surrounding trees prevent the surface from drying. This route is not gritted regularly in winter despite numerous requests by residents. In particular there is a deep rut next to the hard surface on the western bank of the Burn - more than one vehicle has got stuck when moving to the side to allow others to pass. If a cyclist puts a wheel off they will tumble 10ft into the Burn - there is no barrier. The muddy surface is a particular hazard when vehicles are have to brake when descending down towards the burn in both directions along the lane. There are numerous other similar problems and potholes between this point and West Molesden Wood in particular.
