Please take this seriously, and don't just fob it off. Road in very poor state, cars swerving to avoid potholes. Fix ASAP!

  • A new enquiry has been raised for this issue.

    Posted by Bristol City Council at 19:10, Tuesday 1 February 2022

  • In Reference to case 3236361, which Bristol City Council very kindly closed.

    The audacity to say this is ‘not urgent’ is astounding. I would be interested to hear what you class as urgent - perhaps a motorcyclist seriously injuring themselves due to the horrendous road conditions in this area?

    Why does it always seem to take a serious incident to happen before anything gets done.

    You mentioned that you will ‘deal with this area as part of future planned work’. When will this be? No timeframe has been given.

    Has anyone from the council visited the site, or driven on this road everyday for work/leisure.

    You don’t need a PHD in road resurfacing to know that the current road condition is dangerous to all road users, let alone the possible costs involved for vehicle repair, which I’m sure the council would be happy to pay for.

    I look forward to a leisurely drive down to the area where I’ll be taking some photos to add to this call in case you were not already aware of how dangerous this stretch of road is.

    If no further update is provide within a reasonable time frame I shall be contacting the local news channels, whom I sure will enjoy covering this as part of their weekly news bulletin.
