Concerns with slurry sealing

Reported via desktop in the General highways enquiry category anonymously at 09:15, Fri 2 September 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3797095.

On Monday 22nd August a notice dropped through by letterbox from a company called Pronin Ltd., on behalf of Bristol City Council, advising that the “resurfacing of the footpaths would take place in the next few days”.

On this side of Brookland Road we have no “concrete” entrance to our driveways, just one long tarmac pavement. I approached the contractors, just before they started work at 8am, saying I needed to “walk” out of my driveway at 9:15am and I was told they would put a “board down” for me to walk on! They completed the “slurry seal” dressing before 8:30am and I was told it would be dry “in 40 minutes” but they would put a “board down”! At 9:15am the contractors were no longer in the road and so I had to negotiate neighbours gardens to “get out”! Having returned home at 4pm, the “slurry seal” has still not “set”!

I feel the whole exercise is a complete waste of time and money and no consideration was given on how we could “walk in and out” of our property!
