Mud and debris making pathway unsafe in Jacobs Ladder from Summerfield Road down to Claremont Buildings

Reported in the Pavement damage category anonymously at 13:38, Mon 3 September 2018

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 2 minutes later. Council ref: 1402974.

Mud has gathered in the steep steps of this path and needs clearing ASAP please before somebody falls. The mud and debris is worst in the area below the handrail which has to be clung on to when going downhill as the path is so steep. Has been getting worse over many weeks.

  • This path is in urgent need of being cleared again. There is thick mud and leaf mould on the steep steps. The area under the handrail was not adequately cleared last time and the debris simply migrates onto the path. The handrail is unusable in some areas due to ivy and scrubby twigs overhanging it. This path is so heavily used by pedestrians it would be appreciated if it was made a priority to clear it.

  • Since I posted this on February 6th the path has still not even been swept and the vegetation has not been tackled. Slippy on wet days and the presence of beech nuts make it slippery on dry days, really no way to encourage people to leave their cars at home and walk to school
