Large pothole and drain cover causing a lot of noise

Reported via mobile in the Roads category anonymously at 11:00, Saturday 3 February 2024

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5526845.

This has pothole has been around for awhile and due the nature of it every single car that drives over it makes a really loud clang sound per wheel. This keeps the whole building up at night as it's a very busy road and so it's constantly being uses. Every 4-30seconds there's the loud clang.

  • Please do something. The problem is only getting louder, our mental health of the people in the building from the lack of sleep is getting worse. Please at least put a temporary hole cover on it if you cannot fix it.

  • The previous repairs have not fixed the problem. The pothole continues to make loud noise. For residents in the building nearby, the noise pollution from the pothole has been making life difficult for more than a month now!

  • This is now dangerous, the whole drain cover is loose and moves violently when driven over, aswell as the bits of rock that are loose too that will no doubt start to fling up into cars and or pedestrians

  • The noise is currently peaking at over 100db when a car drives over it and is at risk of damaging the hearing of residents living next to the drain in Newfoundland Court.

    The surface is severely damaged and there is significant movement in the drain cover itself.

  • You may also want to look at the drain/grate about 50m further down the road (outside Duke offices/Moxy hotel) as that is also starting to deteriorate.
