I walk from southmead hospital to eastville along muller road most evenings, coming home from work around 8pm (buses are so poor/unreliable in the evening). Lots of stretches of pavement on both sides are difficult to navigate (uneven surfaces, slippery bits where it’s been filled in with different materials, oily puddles, lots of leaf debris, tree roots coming through pavement, water pooling around drains even on relatively dry days, a plethora of road working materials blown all over the place). Many stretches are so badly lit that I slip and stumble frequently. Muller road top is the worst surface and poorly lit, the junction of shaldon road is the worst for pools of water and debris, the section around the junction of stottbury road is the worst lit and downright dangerous (I’ve narrowly missed being hit by a vehicle twice here). Parts of Bristol are becoming increasingly difficult to walk around. With the unreliability of buses and not being able to afford to run a car I’m left with walking home from work along a dark, dangerous street and arriving home with soaking wet shoes and leaf matter splattered on trouser legs. Please can the needs of pedestrians be addressed?
