Raised lumps in road at bus stop outside Co-op

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

On Wednesday 28th July at about 3pm, my wife was walking across the road opposite the Co-op on Gloucester Road when she tripped on a raised lump of tarmac in the road by the bus stop. She fell and broke both her wrists. She also bashed her face quite badly. In consequence both her arms are in plaster for six weeks and I have to be her full time carer. The lump in the road is very prominent and is one of two at the bus stop, probably caused by the weight of the buses that stop there. They are a danger not only to pedestrians but also cyclists and scooter users. They should be fixed before further serious injury takes place.
