Dangerous looking wall adjacent to road

Reported in the Obstruction on road or pavement category anonymously at 17:25, Thu 16 January 2020

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 5 minutes later. Council ref: 1943040.

Hello, your website doesn’t really give me a proper category to report this problem and it won’t allow me to not select a category so ‘objects in the road’ is not accurate to the problem I’m trying to report, but I wanted to tell you about a problem that I thought looked dangerous with a retaining wall in Timsbury that is right on the edge of the carriageway. I occasionally drive through North Road, Timsbury coming from Peasedown direction, and as you approach the junction with Bloomfield Road (nearly the Conygre hall) there is a large retaining wall on the left side of the road which is very high. It has a horizontal crack running along the middle of it for quite a long way. This has made the upper part of the wall slope inwards towards the land it is supporting. It has been this way for a long time and I’ve thought about reporting it before now and today decided to do it (After reading about a wall collapse recently on the BBC News elsewhere in the country). I don’t know if this has been reported by anyone else, and investigated and found to be safe, but I’ve always thought it looks dodgy whenever I am driving along the road there. I don’t particularly want to cause trouble for anyone but if I didn’t report it and something were to happen I would regret it if somebody got injured being as it is right beside the carriageway. Luckily there is no pavement there but it is a very high wall and if it collapsed I think it could crash down onto a passing car.
