Roofing vans blocking pavement

Reported via mobile in the Obstruction category anonymously at 08:21, Wednesday 15 September 2021

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

The pavement on the left side of Headley Lane leading onto St peters rise is blocked because of roadworks and now builders have blocked the pavement on the right side aswell forcing school children to walk in the road and cross onto St peters rise on a blind bend. If both sides of pavement are blocked then traffic needs to be slowed down to make it less dangerous.

  • This has been reported to the police already. The issue is also made worse by abandoned holes in the pavement left by the utilities companies on the corner affecting the whole of St Peters Rise. An end date to the works needs to be given to residents who are having to either walk in the road or cross over on a blind bend bend to reach Headley Lane.

  • Did you get a crime reference number? I’d consider contacting the police again, asking for an update

  • I waited an hour to get through to the police and nothing has been done about the vans on the opposite pavement The issue of the holes on St oeters rise are the councils responsibility and the police advised me to get back to you. The vans on the pavement are making things more difficult but the fact remains children have to cross St peters rise very near a bend to reach Headley Lane and that is something the police can not help with. This is caused by the utilities work that hasn't seen any action for all of last week. Both issues are causing pedestrians into the road including school children.

  • Hi, just to clarify, I am not the council. I am a resident in Bristol, in BS7.

    Those vans are definitely a police problem, they are illegally parked causing a dangerous obstruction to pedestrians. Quite this to them if you call again. You could also make a formal complaint to the companies and inform them that you will involve the police.
