  1. Whilst the overall construction appears very good I do still worry that the sharp right hand bend will still see accidents as it comes with little warning after you have been made to feel secure with the wider road leading up to this point. Having used the new road on Friday, I found this turning ‘too sharp’ in relation to the rest of the road layout and it does worry me once the high powered cars give it a go! Hopefully some extra warning signs still to be erected?
