Damaged kerb & Pavement surface

Reported via desktop in the Pavement Defect category anonymously at 09:10, Saturday 1 May 2021

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

Building site across the road from this damage which is using a significant section of Filton Grove as a site compound. Heavy vehicles have recently been attending the site, including a large concrete pump lorry and cement mixer lorries. Cement mixer lorries have been seen to mound this pavement to park awaiting entry into the site compound. The damaged pavement is the only one available to pedestrians as the opposite pavement is closed off by the compound.

  • Yesterday I noticed a repair had been carried out but noted that nothing has been done to raise the depressed kerbstones, the repair therefore leaving quite a camber on the slope of the pavement. I also noted that the pavement either side of the repair has cracks running parallel to the road and again the kerbstones are depressed. I understand from a near neighbour to the repair that the repair has been carried out recently. However, in my opinion the repair has not been carried out to a suitable standard and there is a possible risk to pedestrians due to the uneven surface. This pavement is the only one available to pedestrians at the end of Filton Grove at the Muller Road junction as a building site compound is on the other side of the road straddling the pavement.

  • Heavy construction vehicles have been manoeuvring over the road both within the construction compound and on the narrow strip of road left for residential traffic outside the compound resulting in some surface damage. The damaged pavement opposite the compound has also been 'hit' by a vehicle which may have caused some more damage. The road surface inside the compound, the compound remaining in position 24/7, probably should not be repaired until the building contractor has finished, but perhaps the road section open to residential traffic and the one pavement remaining open to pedestrians should be inspected for repair.

    I believe planning enforcement is also looking at the road closure working practices of the contractors on site.
