Westerns Lane which runs from Markington up towards Fountains has been re-opened by the County Council following lengthy works to deal with the flooding problem which created a very slippery section and a substantial danger to cyclists. A recent ride along this lane confirms it is now a lot better with the slippery section cleaned up and no sign of any flooding. Members are however advised to exercise caution especially in spells of wet weather until it is clear the problem has been fully solved.
