Long term build up of water and alluvium blocking road/pathway

Reported via desktop in the Flooding category by Len Jones at 21:21, Tue 10 August 2021

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

This issue has previously been reported (see: 2746712) and closed as 'funding unavailable'. As a long term resident of this area of Bristol can confirm that there has been a regular build-up of mud and near-continuous puddling of rainwater due to blockages in the local drainage system for decades. Having moved to the Trendlewood locale in the mid 90's could see there was a problem with drainage, so was already established when I first noticed it. And has been evident ever since. The area in question was completely cleared by volunteers around 4 weeks ago. However, since the recent rains is now back to its usual condition, which makes it near impassable for wheelchair users trying to navigate the Frome Walkway ... FYI: the section from the city up to Oldbury Court is largely wheelchair accessible apart from this location.

  • Access through this path is often impossible during rainfall, especially for anyone with mobility issues or with a pushchair as the water build up is so extreme. I often have to find another route to work, making me late on multiple occasions. The volunteers do a fantastic job of clearing it, however as it is such a main thoroughfare I believe a more permanent fix from the council would benefit many users of the park and local residents.

  • This really is a health and safety issue, and a main route to work for many people. I've been caught in this flooding before, and when it gets bad you can't see the edge of the curb. Over winter 2020 I slipped off the kerbstone, ruining my clothes and injuring my ankle.

  • I am a wheelchair user and cannot get past this flooded and muddy area. This severely restricts my access to areas beyond such as Snuff Mills.

  • Very dangerous area , a major H& S blackspot. Because it is the one difficult part of this wonderful path along the Frome l tried to pass with my friend who is in a wheelchair and nearly tipped her our. Surely as the Council know of this highway hazard and do nothing to fix it they are liable for any claim for injury or damages? Anyway its a clear case of disability discrimination and they should be ashamed of themselves and fix it asap.

  • This is a public health issue and needs fixing. We had to walk along this flooded path in a downpour recently with our young children and noticed the floodwater was very smelly. When we got further along we realised the cause was a manhole cover raising and releasing raw sewage straight onto the path. This is a heavily used path on a key route through the park l, including school children from several nearby schools and dog walkers. Bristol City Council it is simply NOT GOOD ENOUGH to keep turning a blind eye and refusing to fix this disgusting problem. Shame in you.
