Wall is crumbling and barriers are causing problems on the pavement

Reported in the Retaining Wall category anonymously at 17:33, Tue 18 December 2018

Sent to Bristol City Council 2 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 1490414.

For at least 6 months or more part of the wall at the spire hospital has been shored up with temporary barriers put up so people can walk in the gutter. The gutter is slippery on a dry day and at the moment is full of rain water which isn’t draining away. It also blows down on occasion and is dangerous. In the last month I have fallen over twice and ruined a £40 pair of jeans. My husband fell over last week and ended up in A&E where he had to have a ring cut from his finger. This ring had sentimental value as was left to him by his late father. Please can something be done about this as it has gone on for too long and also causes issues with traffic as the road is now narrower and there are some huge trucks coming and going from the new retirement home being built opposite. Thank you.

  • This is how it's been over the entire holiday period. The first picture taken on 22/12/18, the second on 28/12/18. It is still like it today (1/1/19).

  • I have again reported this issue to my local concillor (my previous two emails have been ignored) and also to another councillor in the area. I have also written to the CEO of Spire Healthcare (as it's his wall that needs to be fixed). I suggest that others (who are concerned about this serious public safety issue) should also put pressure on all concerned to get some action. Those materially impacted might also want to consider claiming for compensation from those responsible - at the very least have any necessary medical treatment carried out by Spire, free of charge!

  • Can BCC tell me when this problem will be sorted and the pavement reinstated. It must be two years now this situation has existed.

  • BCC won't tell you anything. BCC have consistently ignored these reports. Occasionally, they have cynically claimed that the problem has been fixed.

    I have written a number of times to my two Councillors, as well as to the Mayor of Bristol, without receiving a reply.

    However, today I received an email from Spire Healthcare management stating that they expect a resolution shortly, having been frustrated "by third party matters". I have also received a positive response from my local MP's office.

    I'm not going to get carried away, but I am feeling slightly optimisitc . . .
