Poor surface on New King St and river cycle path.

Reported in the Potholes & road surface category anonymously at 14:57, Thu 1 October 2020

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2320536.

The road surface on new King St is particularly bad, when cycling along it. Plus, the river path desperately needs re-surfacing, between the Locksbrook Inn and Nelson Pl West - it is in a poor state and a real bone-shaker, each time I cycle along, with ruts, bumps and assorted tree roots protruding. Thanks

  • Pics attached... tho some would not send, as it seems there's a limit. The worst section of the river path is between the Windsor Bridge and the Locksbrook Inn.

    New King St is rutted its whole length - doesn't look too bad, but awful to cycle on.
