Very low wall 27ins, 16ft drop onto concrete

Reported via mobile in the Retaining Wall category by Martin Stocker at 08:54, Wed 28 July 2021

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

I believe cycling is allowed along this path, because it's wide and road busy, where the railings meet the stone wall (slight gap) the wall is so low a cyclist could topple over, or pedestrian, with nothing to stop them falling 16ft to concrete. Of course cycling on a road has dangers, ie vehicles, but here pedestrians milling about have to avoid them, maybe over balance or irate thug push sideways, and over the wall one would go. Not sure what could raise height , extended top railing? Build up wall a bit?.
