Sunken utility cover in the middle of Ashton Road with a 40mm step

Reported in the Carriageway Defect category anonymously at 22:48, Wed 13 May 2020

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

Issue 1967516 This was signed-off as not needing any further action but there's a 40mm step in the carriageway. I cycled back out to it this week and took a photo.

Can Bristol City Council tell me what the acceptance criteria is for these types of defects, please? I would like to understand the reasons for accepting the previous report as being OK.
