DANGER - Entering junction from Orchard Way (west from east) turning right into unnamed road (north) the surface differs it type - appears to be a new patch

DANGEROUS SLIPPERY ROAD SURFACE - Entering junction from Orchard Way (west from east) turning right into unnamed road (north) the surface is dangerously slippy in the rain it also has a camber. Even to the foot the surface is very slippy. This causes vehicle to slide dangerously even at slow speeds as they turn into the junction from the main road. The surface area is a single patch covering the entry/exit to the junction only and differs from the rest of the 2 roads. This new surface should be attended immediately and a proper finish applied to ensure suitable grip. In addition to the slippy surface there is a ditch on the corner of each side of the road junction. The original safety barrier has been hit and left in the pit meaning vehicles can drop 4ft+ into easily inches from the road. Appears there have been several accidents here in past due to worn brick work, bent steel posts, old post foundations with posts missing etc.
