Loose kerbs failing into highway at roundabout st Agnes avenue, Sylvia avenue

Reported via mobile in the Pavement Defect category anonymously at 10:50, Tuesday 12 January 2021

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

The kerbs around the pavement edges at the roundabout junction of Slyvia avenue, Ravenhill avenue and st Agnes avenue, have come away from the edge of the pavement. The kerbs are regularly being pulled into the carriageway by the large vehicles that drive over the pavements in order to manoeuvre at this junction. Residents regularly move them back out of the way to prevent serious injury or worse to the many cyclists that use this junction. At night these would not be seen in the road. The pavement itself is now crumbling into the road behind the loose kerbs. This is was reported to you previously, I think a year ago, and has not been addressed.

  • Can any repairs also include dropped kerbs so disabled people can cross the road, and makes it easier for pushchairs?

  • In response to the request for dropped kerbs. The residents have requested through our local Councillors that the kerbs actually around the roundabout be raised significantly to slow the speed of vehicles and stop the vehicles mounting the pavements, causing this damage to the pavements and kerbs and danger to Pedestrians. The traffic speed and behaviours is dangerous at the junction. However, I agree that there should be dropped kerbs for pedestrians with pushchairs and disabilities on the straight stretches of pavement. It is an area heavy with pedestrians for schools and parks and cyclists and is not safe at the moment for these road users. Creating a crossing point at the roundabout is not a safe place to cross.

  • I strongly disagree with the kerbs being lowered, we have requested the opposite due to level of fast traffic entering St Agnes Avenue from the roundabout. I would strongly oppose this happening for road safety reasons
