Limited traction/frictionless road surface when wet.

Reported via desktop in the Roads category anonymously at 23:46, Monday 11 July 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

Section of road replaced last year has reduced traction compared to surrounding road surface; significantly hazardous when wet, although is greasy even when dry.

When wet, as well as causing proven accidents to cyclists, cars burn rubber trying to drive up the hill or around the corner; most noticeable when queues form during 'hometime'.

After rain, the tyres on my bicycle (rugged not slicks) slipped from under me at only ~5 mph. I came off bike, landed on my shoulder and slid downhill on the frictionless surface from well before the LH junction to just past it. Shoulder and knee injuries sustained, pain and reduced shoulder mobility continues 4 weeks later.

Submitting some of these details as a Street Improvement but unable to add photos there so submitting here too.
