2 ex-sign posts and undergrowth obstruct pavement.

Reported via mobile in the Obstruction category anonymously at 17:14, Fri 4 November 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

I was very disappointed that my October reporting of this problem was suddenly 'closed' without explanation. Nothing has been fixed despite the issue being redirected by the council to a different department. The problem still exists and the pavement is still obstructed by old sign posts that have no sign attached, and by the overgrown foliage that has grown alongside the pavement. There is little room for a pedestrian on this path, and sometimes I have to step into the road to pass by. No one on a mobility scooter would be able to use this footpath. It is on a route well used by pedestrians. Please attend to this,and don't just 'close' the raised problem without ensuring the problem is fixed. At least let me know if there is a plan to make this pathway usable.

  • This problem has not been adressed as of 1st DECEMBER 2022. It is still narrowing the footpath so that perdestrians can only pass in single file, and it remains impossible for double buggies or mobility scooters.

  • This pavement remains blocked as of 19th Jan 2023. No action to clear the overgrowth and remove the post has been taken by the council. Are they waiting for someone to collide with a vehicle before they act? There is a good 18 inches of pavement under the overgrowning plants.
