Above Bar Street, Southampton SO14, UK

Is this an example of good or bad infrastructure?: 
Type of infrastructure: 
Fast or busy main road

Guildhall Square was resurfaced at great cost:

However it has since become a nightmare for riders. Gaps between the stones can pinch a front wheel if you're not cautious. There are several deep, sunken sections.
It has been narrowed - yet you're meant to share with buses and taxis - many of which dont take into account the fact you might be trying to avoid those sunken sections or wheel-trappers and will drive at you or closely pass you.

I have been run off this section of my route around three times by Bluestar bus drivers, once pushed out towards a group of pedestrians.

When it rains the stone becomes like ice!
