Road camber increased so much with new road surfacing now damaging underside of cars entering and exiting driveway

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

St Helena Rd was recently resurfaced without digging out the old tarmac, resulting in an increase in the camber on the carriageway because the surface material was not extended to the kerb. Subsequently, myself and my neighbour are unable to drive onto or off pf our shared driveway without scraping the undersides of bumpers/ exhaust systems etc. The road is now causing significant damage to our private vehicles. We are increasingly being forced to park on the road, which puts others at a disadvantage when spaces are limited. I am also concerned that damage to the exhaust system on my car may contribute to increased pollutant from my engine.

The road is due to have a further layer of tarmac added this week - please can this be addressed simultaneously?!
