Damaged kerb

Reported in the Pavement Defect category anonymously at 20:54, Tuesday 4 August 2020

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

Outside 18 Raleigh road, unessential works done last week and completed today or yesterday by the bristol water company to replace the main so it isn't lead have badly cracked and damaged the 2 kerb stones. If this work was essential, surely all the houses should have the watermain changed as they are all lead. Why is this work authorised?

They should pay to fix the damage they have done to the road and pavement, as those heritage kerb stones (not sure if they are Bristol pennant) will disintegrate quickly with their shoddy workmanship. You can see they are not relaid straight, there are cracks in the stone and a gap between them and the pavement. You may want to send someone to inspect the repair done to the road surface as well, as I am not an expert on this, although given what is visible, it is likely to be poorly done, resulting in a future repair bill for council tax payers.
