Due to the nasty conditions of last year’s prolonged winter there are more pot holes than ever on London’s roads… Here are just two of the many innovative ways cyclists and cyclist organisation are highlighting the problem:
Will Shannon has built the ‘Street Plotter’. It’s a device that automatically drops paint on the road as you go over a bump. A creative DIY approach to highlighting bad road surfaces, it’s not really at a marketable stage yet and is probably a bit illegal!
The CTC have developed an iPhone app – ‘Fill that Hole’. It combines a photograph of a pothole with GPS technology to pinpoint the exact location of the hazard. Once a report is logged, the relevant local authority is informed, so they can quickly inspect and fix it.
