Back to all reports

The road has dropped about 3 inches causing a concave bowl shape where the rain water collects making the ground underfoot slippery and unsafe. This section of road is found outside the entrance to 140 London Road West.

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2498550.

This problem has got worst over the year to a point now that it requires attention. After a spell of rain this area dams up with water making the section impassable. The only way around this section after a spell of rain is step off the side path and onto London road, which is extremely unsafe. There is a manhole drain within 3 metres of this area but due to the road dropping the water can't drain away.
