Potholes on Somer Lane

Reported via desktop in the Carriageway Defect category anonymously at 16:21, Wednesday 9 February 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

"The surface of Somer Lane is so dire that it is dangerous to drive along and with no fencing/barrier in between the road and the Malago it is worrying cars may end up in the river attempting to avoid damage to their vehicles. The potholes are too numerous to count and extend further than just a few metres of the lane. This has been deteriorating for years with the last maintenance being a small amount of gravel being added barely filling any holes in the road"
