Gritty road surface - resurfacing work from 2021 never com[;eted

Reported via desktop in the Roads category anonymously at 08:53, Wed 20 July 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3689518.

Ref: 2688021 I have reported the issue of loose grit/unfinished resurfacing of Raymend Road in April 2021 and emailed several times since then. It has never been fixed and I have never received an update, nor notification that this issue has now been closed at your end. Quite frankly this is appalling. The loose grit is damaging cars, bicycles, and even pedestrians with flying grit and completely blocking drains in Raymend Road eg the one outside our house at Number 38 overflows in seconds when it rains. The nearby streets around eg Holmesdale and Stanbury have very recently been re-surfaced and that job was completed correctly with no loose grit being left. You didn't have a relevant drop down option and so I just picked the 1st one - for potholes - in the hope that would catch an eye. I'd love to "be polite" but have never received the courtesy of a reply from you and so that's a challenging request. Would you PLEASE look thoroughly into this issue and have the courtesy of replying to me before closing this issue, which you have now done twice, without notifying me of any action on your part. As this issue has been going on for so long I have also lodged it as a complaint.
