Covid Walkways being amended for parked cars

Reported via desktop in the General Highways Enquiry category anonymously at 14:50, Mon 30 November 2020

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

The new Covid extensions to the footpaths are getting smaller and smaller as people and workmen push the barriers that have been placed there, to be able to park their cars, even though the parking bays have been suspended. I've even seen people move the barriers and park their vehicles within the barriers to give them a personal private parking space. This has been ongoing for weeks. I understood that for the barriers to be chapter 8 compliant they should also be water filled to prevent this happening and preventing movement into the carriageway. Please can this be investigated and either remove the barriers and reinstate the parking bays or to provide a better solution to stop the barriers being moved. This is an issue on both sides and along the length of North Street. Many thanks

  • People came out yesterday to put the barriers back in place (thank you). Only for them to be moved again less than an hour later by people parking (coming from What's on bristol). A better solution needs to be found or the parking bays to be reinstated.
