Road redressing work has made road surface significantly worse

The surface of Belluton Road (BS4 2DN/BS4 2DW) was recently redressed (approx. 3 months ago).

This work was done to a very poor standard and has made the road surface significantly worse than it was before.

- The driving surface is uneven and when it rains there is standing water (puddles) all along the road where vehicle tyres meet the tarmac (see pictures). This causes pedestrians to be splashed and will be dangerous when we get wintry conditions and ice. Potholes will develop where there is water.

- The non driving surface of the road is covered in loose gravel, particularly in the centre and either side of the road (see pictures). A street sweeper vehicle came to try and clear this up but it made little difference. This is causing stone chips to damage cars parked on teh street.

- The appearance of the road is poor due to all the above factors. The road looks unfinished due to all the gravel and the road surface is visibly uneven and covered in standing water..

Other roads locally have been resurfaced to a much higher standard and do not have the same issues.

Please can someone come and inspect the road as the issues are clear to see - we would like these to be resolved as soon as is feasible.
