Disintegrating road surface on Alfred Place

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later
The road surface on Alfred Place is still falling apart, as it has been for months, and yet nothing has been done about this, despite reporting it 2 weeks ago. It has been reported as fixed by Bristol City Council. It hasn’t been. It remains a danger, particularly to cyclists. Amazingly, Walker Street/Myrtle Road, an adjoining street to Alfred Place has just been resurfaced completely, yet it was in far better condition than Alfred Place. This makes no sense and gives the impression that Alfred Place doesn’t matter, despite in part being a particularly busy “rat run” with Walker Street/Myrtle Road.
A new enquiry has been raised for this issue.

The council have replied that this doesn’t need fixing and that they will get around to it at some point in the future as part of their routine schedule. In the meantime, while we wait for this unknown date, the road surface will continue to deteriorate to a point where more extensive and more costly repairs will be needed. On one level, I don’t blame the council as they have limited resources, I blame 12 years of Tory austerity that is allowing our public realm (and public services) to decline into ruin.
