Very poor re-cobbling after recent utilty works

Reported in the Carriageway Defect category anonymously at 15:52, Thu 3 January 2019

Sent to Bristol City Council 3 minutes later

In November contractors for a utility company (sewerage I think) did some works in Vyvyan Road which included removing both tarmac and cobbles at the junction with Lansdown Road. As you will see from the attached photos, the relaying of the cobbles has not been done to a fit and safe standard. They need taking up and relaying as they are dangerous in their current state. Many thanks.

  • Hi,

    Whilst it has been made safe, the utility company contractors have not repaid or relaid the cobbles/stones- instead they have been replaced with tarmac. As such the work remains defective.

    It is a conservation area and any removal of cobbles and its replacement with tarmac would require planning consent. In any event damage by contractors should be sorted by them, using like materials and at no cost to the council.

    Please can this be sorted properly as it is a pain for all to have to involve our local councillor?

    Thanks and sorry!
