Back to all reports

Incompetent council at best total lack of care at worst.

Reported via desktop in the Potholes & road surface category anonymously at 15:24, Friday 9 April 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2662362.

Reported time after time. Token effort made on a Saturday morning some weeks ago and nothing since. The road is now dangerous to cylists and damaging to cars. 4 spokes on my bicycle have now snapped on Baths roads and the council appear to be completely incompetent in dealing with transport issues of any kind. Lets hope we see a change in May to a competent council or at least one that cares. There is not one pot hole but a series of holes, ruts and raised manhole covers that span at least 200mtrs.

  • You won't see a change in May as there is no Council election, only one for the West of England mayor.
