Melting tarmac

Reported via iOS in the Roads category anonymously at 17:37, Tue 19 July 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

Recently tarmaced Charlton Road, the tar is melting in the heat and has been doing so at any prolonged temperatures over 25 degrees C. Not just getting soft, but actually liquid. This is the worst resurfacing job I’ve seen in 30 years of driving, clearly something was not right with the tar mix used. In this heat, I’d hate to think of the burns this might cause if it splashed a passing pedestrian or dog.
