The pavement on bedminster Rd between shepton walk and st dunstans is highly uneven and dangerous

Reported via mobile in the Pavement Defect category anonymously at 19:49, Mon 7 March 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

There are lots of trees where the roots are breaking up the pavement. However there are also really uneven packing stones. In short the pavement is dangerous. I’m eight months pregnant and went over on my ankle after twisting on the uneven paving. This has happened previously but obviously my concern was heightened by the late stage of my pregnancy. Furthermore, as I fell through pushchair I was pushing flipped over and my daughter hung upside down from her harness which terrified me. If this happens when the new baby arrives she won’t wear a harness in the bassinet and you can clearly see my concern.

I appreciate the tree roots are a complex problem but I live in shepton walk and this section of pavement has been horrendous for many years and I’m really concerned about the prospects of attempting a double buggy here, or even a newborn in a sling.
