Colapsed pavement

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

Damaged tarmac pavement caused by big HGV delivery lorries outside M Coll's convienient store on the square Knowle Park. I have highlighted this ongoing problem many times in the past with local councillors, and the pavement has been repaired with new tarmac. At this present moment in time, the pavement is in poor condition, and has the potential for someone to fall down in this location. In my opinion it is a health and safety issue. The tarmac pavement outside M Coll's convienient store has colapsed under the weight of big HGV delivery vehicles, with the wheels pushing the tarmac upwards. Over a considerable area/length the tarmac is cracking up with clay from the foundation under the tarmac now visible, and in damp conditions after rain the clay is wet. The HGV delivery lorries drive up on the pavement when stopping outside M Coll's. Because of limited parking outside M Coll's, cars also park on this damaged section of tarmac outside the convienient store. I have just witnessed a big 4x4 high performance car, parked halfway on the road and half way above the damaged section of tarmac. Is it any wonder there is ongoing problematic problem in this location, also a health and safety issue.
