  • The hole has got bigger and the stones in it flick up and scratch parked cars. Last week somebody hit the pothole on a bike and fell off and hurt themselves. It is bloody dangerous. For Christ’s sake fix it. Get a grip. It is getting worse and will be 4 months since reporting it by the end of Jan. Best part of half a year before you do anything. I know the Tory government are terrible but just get a move on before someone takes you to court over a serious accident. Please sought it now !

  • This pothole has now expanded to dangerous proportions. Despite several repairs being carried out previously a larger pothole has been created. This is almost impossible to see when driving at night due to the position of the streetlight and parked vehicles. Rather than just dump tarmac in the hole perhaps a more effective solution would be to re tarmac and level the area around it to prevent further water seepage being created by the undulations of previous repairs

  • As a resident of Norton Road, I fear for my car and that of others who regularly use this road. The pothole is worsening daily, getting deeper and stones from the hole are being flung across the road. We try to keep it swept, but are concerned that cars are going to be damaged by the hole and stones being kicked up from the road. Please fix properly as a matter of urgency( the hole was fixed in October, by just filling it) the repair lasted a few weeks before it started to break down. Try

  • The pothole is gradually getting worse as cars hit it. It is particularly dangerous for people cycling in the dark,

  • Hello. THIS part of 32 Norton Rd, BS4 is gettting worse. PROBLEMS are 1) Stones are flicking up out of the hole onto cars, some are sharp and will soon puncture a tyre. 2) A CYCLIST HIT the hole a month ago and came off. 3)BLOODY FIX the BLOODY hole as all the residents are getting really really PISSED off. It’s also RIGHT next to a disabled bay !! ITS been OVER 6 MONTHS since reported. What’s it going to take ? A cyclist cracking their head open & a court case to make you fix this ? Or a disabled person falling over, or a windscreen cracking ? 4) PLUS , the cracks from it ARE joining up to a MANHOLE cover. If left, it could all collapse & then you will be in deep shit. Collapsed manhole ... oh dear. You have been warned & you will be liable. Get you act together.

  • Outside 32 Norton Rd, BS4. The cracks around the manhole could lead to serious problems. This is next to a growing hole in the road. The road there is starting to dip. This whole section needs repairing properly, NOT JUST ROUND THE HOLE, THE HOLE ITSELF , OR ROUND THE MANHOLE COVER, OR THE DIP IN THE ROAD, BUT ALL OF THIS SECTION. Part of this was poorly repaired & it’s getting worse. Accidents have occurred due to the hole & the manhole will give way at some point. PLEASE FIX it NOW, and you will save money & potential court case related accident fees. No brainer.

  • This has been repaired so badly it is falling apart. You are wasting your money. You have to come back. 1) Firstly you repaired it and it hadn’t set properly before road users were driving over it 2) Secondly it hasn’t been filled properly 3) Thirdly you haven’t repaired any of the cracks next to the big hole , and the cracks round the MAN hole. Christ we are pissed off as it is going to happen all over again & at present stones are flicking up and chipping our vehicles. Why can’t you do a normal job of it ? It’s a bloody joke & you are wasting your money and time
