Underpasses: Unsafe road surface for cycles when wet, lots of broken glass

Sent to Bristol City Council 3 minutes later

I have narrowly avoided a nasty accident after braking hard on my bicycle to avoid a large amount of broken glass and rubbish strewn across the width of the underpass. I lost control of the bike on the wet tiles, and suffered multiple small cuts to my hands as I fell into the broken glass. Given the size of the glass pieces and how close I came to hitting my head on the floor, this could easily have been a lot worse. The tiles are not a suitable surface for bicycles.
