Man holes blocked and noisy, cats eyes very noisy, low kerb

Reported via desktop in the Potholes & road surface category anonymously at 12:41, Tue 24 November 2020

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2403081.

Recently the Kelston road was resurfaced and this made the road much quieter temporarily. Unfortunately shortly this was done new cats eyes were installed and these are very proud of the road surface and due to the narrowness of the road there and the kink in the centre line (visible on the photo but much more obvious on physical inspection) there are driven over by a high number of vehicles. They are incredibly noisy. Particularly from Heavy goods vehicles. In addition over time the two manholes appeared to have sunk below the road surface and they are very loud. Often, at night, when trucks go over them they now make the house shake. The other unintended consequence of the road resurfacing is that the already very low pavement has become lower and more vehicles are mounting the pavement as there is little to prevent them. This makes this section very perilous to walk along. Our house has been hit twice by vehicles recently (double decker buses) and I would appreciate the kerb being raised to reduce the chances of this.
