Rocking/damaged paving slabs by Castlemead

Reported in the Pavement Defect category anonymously at 16:02, Mon 23 September 2019

Sent to Bristol City Council 2 minutes later

There are a number of rocking and damaged paving slabs on the pavement in front of the Castlemead tower. Vans and HGVs often mount the pavement here to perform deliveries for Castlemead, which poses an obstruction for passing pedestrians and cyclists. So I request that firstly - the rocking and damaged paving slabs are made secure before any pedestrians trip and injure themselves. And secondly - that the option to implement a loading bay for use for deliveries to Castlemead is explored to prevent any further damage to the pavement.

  • Update - No attempts to resolve the issue have yet been made. Pavement is still in a very poor condition with sunk and rocking paving slabs.

  • This remains unresolved. Walking through here yesterday I had to squeeze past a delivery van, and in the dark tripped over a rocking slab. Whilst I managed to remain upright it was a close call, and someone would not have been so lucky. This is a litigation claim waiting to happen, and the council were made aware months ago. Please fix the slabs. Please put up some bollards at the same time to prevent lorries mounting the pavement. A loading bay is not an option - access would be though a bus lane, and there simply isn't room for a pavement, loading bay and bus lane. The only solution is bollards. There is no need for delivery vans to use the pavement - Castlemead has its own car park.

    Last Monday woman fell over and broke her Nielsen at this location in several places! Paving is like fun house! Video of existing slabs available! Needs to be cordoned off before someone dies!

  • This issue has been partially resolved. Though there appears to no longer be any rocking paving slabs, there are still some uneven and sunk slabs which pose a serious trip hazard.

  • Provisions such as private car parking for most self employed drivers is like being detained without a warrant. If you want something delivered outside the standard business practices - get it yourself!

  • Absolutely shocking clearly not paid for thinking it any thought whatsoever! Castle mead has had a nice face lift paving stones will not last the year! A joke just like council job opportunities.
