Utility Cover damaged outside car park gates to Bedminster Family Practice

Reported via desktop in the Utlility Covers category anonymously at 11:51, Thursday 24 March 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

This cover is extremely dangerous due to the damage of the cover. It has rotted over time. I have contacted both Bristol and Wessex Water who have come out to look at the cover; they have confirmed it does not belong to either of them. We are extremely concerned that as this is on a public pavement, someone could potentially cause themselves serious damage if they were to walk over the cover, especially at night

  • Wessex water attended an hour ago, the engineer stated it was their responsibility and raised a job, leaving a cone there. I called them before I saw this report.

  • The engineer called me back and said they would fit a manhole cover there instead as it would be a lot safer.

  • Wessex water now has to apply for a permit to dig up the council's pavement, this can take up to 30 days but is normally less. Possibly also apply for parking /obstructing the road which has double yellow lines, although it is a very wide pavement so they think they can park vehicles on it. Job ref: 6032 4203 001

  • Thank you for the update. Exciting news!

    Do you know who I would contact about getting a very old, damaged phone box removed from outside our surgery. Its vandalised with no working phone - this was disconnected a couple of years ago now. There is broken glass and the phone box is used as a meeting place

  • BT say an engineer will visit within 48hrs, to clean, replace glazing, and repair/replace payphone. However they have no plans to remove it, and they are obligated to provide that service, but if you are unhappy with the social issues involving the kiosk then the police once informed can work with BT to try to improve the situation, only if the police make an official request would BT consider removal. This is what I have been told( by BT) ref; PP1 ZDX 52, Tel; 0800 661 610, payphone kiosk damage

  • Thanks Martin. The police have requested removal of the phone box - there is no phone in the box - it was dismantled some time ago. The glass will only be smashed again if it is replaced so its pretty pointless and not cost effective.

  • An address for requests; network.rearrangement@openreach.co.uk to remove kiosks. For developers etc all work is chargeable, so if yourselves or police request maybe it would be different. BT told me when I asked earlier if the kiosk was disconnected because it wasn't viable , they said that was not the consideration and it ought to be working and in good condition. I realize you just want it gone, but I also earlier requested a street clean around and especially behind the kiosk, inc. lower wall. So if it goes or stays at least it will look respectable and not an eyesore like at present

  • I see why the kiost is relatively secluded because two sides have vinyl ads over them, the payphone emergency calls at present, I suppose useful when there is a dialing tone for calling for help etc.
