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

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.
