Damaged and uneven surface inc kerbstone

Reported via mobile in the Pavement Defect category anonymously at 16:13, Saturday 27 February 2021

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

Cars repeatedly driving over pavement outside 230 passage road/dead end of lower knole lane have caused damaged and uneven surface. Broken kerbstones. Mud everywhere. Cars parking on public green space which is now muddy and rutted. Pavements are now slippery and dangerous. Have just experienced a car driving at me as I stood on the pavement waiting to cross. The car mounted the kerb inches from me to drive over the pavement and park on the public green space. Can something be done. If this is to be taken over for parking please do it correctly. This situation is currently dangerous for walkers and small children playing. My children have previously experienced cars driving towards them as they walked across the grass from the crow lane roundabout. Is this acceptable?

  • This is now an accident waiting to happen. Children playing on the green whilst cars drive over the kerb and pavement to park on the green. Very little care being taken and they barely slow down. It is not a continuation of the road as they seem to think. Pedestrians are not aware that cars may suddenly mount the kerb near them. Just watched as a parent and child had a car drive around them whilst they walked on the footpath. Didn’t even give way! They drove around children playing on bikes. This is dangerous. The council must take steps to separate cars from people. Clearly the residents need parking but this must be done safely so there is space between people and cars. Please take a look.

  • This problem is getting worse. Half the grass is now mud. Someone has put hardcore chippings on some of the area. Bare tree roots which were raised have now been sawn off by someone. Could this kill the large old tree? The kerbstones leading onto Lower Knole Lane all need replacing now. If this is to be provided as parking this really does need to be managed properly. Please send someone to take a look and arrange this properly with the residents. Up to 10 cars parks on the green at some times.
