Trip hazards due to broken slabs

Reported via desktop in the Pavements category anonymously at 17:30, Wed 19 April 2023

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4462608.

The stretch of pavement outside 42 Church Road is in very poor condition. Many slabs are broken and the surface is sunken due to lorries having been parked on it. It presents trip hazards to pedestrians and has been in this condition for over 2 years. Church road is a busy pedestrian thoroughfare for access to the village from the East, access to Holy Trinity Church and for families to/from Westbury primary school.

  • A new enquiry has been raised for this issue.

  • A job has been raised with our contractors to action this issue and appropriate repairs or maintenance will be undertaken as soon as they can.

  • Some repairs were carried out today (Friday 5th May), specifically the replacement of 3 pavers. However as shown in the attached photographs, the job is only partially completed. A significant number of broken and uneven slabs remain, and in particular the trip hazard at the corner kerbstone remains. In my opinion, so far, an inadequate job.

  • Only 3 pavers replaced, the main trip hazard was not addressed. Also one of the new pavers has already split due to heavy vehicles parking on it, and is starting to tilt. This suggests a poor quality repair.

  • 3 pavers replaced, one already loose & broken. New job raised, but this only replaces the new broken slab & 2 broken originals. These are marked with yellow crosses on attached photo. Neither job addresses the more serious trip hazard at the dropped kerb (marked on attached photo). Overall poor quality work, and wasteful Council process.

  • The latest attempt to fix this problem has failed. This is the third time this job has been addressed. One of the recently replaced slabs has been broken and displaced by a parked vehicle. Original broken pavers and the trip hazard presented by the kerbstone have not been addressed. This seems to me to be a poor process and a waste of council funds. I have referred this to our local Councillors.
