Massive hole on fast narrow street

Reported via desktop in the Carriageway Defect category anonymously at 20:31, Tuesday 8 June 2021

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

The hole has been there for months. I see someone reported this back in October 2020 and it's still there. It's a very narrow, 40mph road, just around a small bend and unavoidable with cars coming at you.

Someone sooner or later is going to swerve into oncoming traffic and kill someone. Please fix this ASAP rather than resurfacing streets that don't need it. Like Bellbarn Avenue....again.

  • This pothole is on a narrow road and on a bend in the road. If traffic coming the otherway you have no choice to hit it! If you don't know its there, you hit it! Its directly on the driving line, getting bigger and bigger! Longer and deeper! Approx 2-3 ft long and approx 6+ inches deep!! I drive on this road everyday and give BCC notice if I suffer any car damage due to this pothole, I will be seeking a claim!! There are other potholes on this road that need attention to. BCC did fix a pothole near to the Iron Bridge but frankly that was nothing, long and shallow.
