Stone post demolished by car (post re-opened)

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction category anonymously at 22:12, Monday 3 October 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

Post re-opened after BCC closed it today. ACTION STILL REQUIRED

24 July 2022: This remains a hazard to pedestrians, cyclists, e-scooters and vehicles. After initially dragging aside the stone post and erecting temporary fences nothing has happened for several weeks. 25 July 2022 Bristol City Council: This issue is currently under investigation. We'll provide updates on the outcome as soon as we can. 21 August 2022: This is a significant and dangerous junction with difficult sight lines that have been made worse by the temporary fencing erected by the council. Can we have an update on progress please and immediate action to restore the historic stone post? 5 September 2022: Bristol City Council responded in only ONE DAY to the original message saying “ This issue is currently under investigation. We'll provide updates on the outcome as soon as we can.” It is now FORTY DAYS later. Please confirm that a contractor has been selected and give a date for the repair to be started. 12 September 2022 Bristol City Council: This issue requires further investigation. We'll provide updates on the outcome in due course. This enquiry has been referred to another team for action. They will provide further updates on the issue in due course. 20 September 2022: It is coming up to 2 months since this hazard was reported. CAZ signs have been erected on the adjacent lamp post, but the demolished stone post is still not fixed. The City Council can find £100M to put up cameras and signs and a charging system for CAZ, but where are the resources for fixing the street and making it safe? 3 October 2022 Bristol City Council: This Fix My Street enquiry has been automatically closed. State changed to: Closed. This report is now closed to updates. You can make a new report in the same location.

  • This site is a mess and has been since July 2022. The fencing is causing obstruction of the pavement and of the roadway. This makes it more difficult for pedestrians, cyclists, e-scooters and motor vehicles to navigate this already difficult corner. The fence support has been placed on a sandbag blocking a drainage gulley. Closing the previous report 3701874 was a shameful abdication of responsibility. Please fix this.

  • Please can you repair this damaged corner, it is proving to be a serious safety issue, it will not be long before there is a serious accident between a pedestrian and a car / van. This morning I witnessed a lady trying to cross here with a child in a buggy and another small child who had a close call with a car. This narrow pavement forms a very valuable and safe pedestrian refuge for those crossing to Cornwallis Crescent. Bristol City please sort this out before an unavoidable accident happens !!!

  • The badly erected fencing obstructs the pavement, so pedestrians wanting to cross from Goldney Avenue into Cornwallis Crescent and vice-versa have no option but to walk in the roadway. The safe space at the end of Goldney avenue for pedestrians to stand while watching and waiting for traffic before crossing the road has been taken up by the fencing. This puts pedestrians at risk of injury from traffic. It needs fixing.
