Road Surface Breaking Up

Reported in the Potholes & road surface category by Nic Delves-Broughton at 19:40, Wed 23 September 2020

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2309071.

The road surface in this area is breaking up badly especially around metal drains and manhole covers. This is very dangerous for cyclists using this road as they could be thrown from their bike and either injured or fall in the path of a car/lorry. Really needs looking at ASAP please

  • They reported that it was fixed but all they have done is put a tiny patch of tarmac into one small dip. I think it has gone now. The real issue is the road around the manhole covers is very bad and causes a metal lip. This is dangerous if cyclist hit this. The road needs resurfacing to rectify.
