Pavement overgrown and dangerous

Reported via desktop in the Pavement damage category anonymously at 21:31, Sunday 18 April 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2678148.

The pavement between Clandown and Peasdown St John is very overgrown by vegetation. The speed limit is 50mph and the space left to walk is too narrow to be safe. I walked it with my young daughter and had to ask her to go in front, rather than by my side. The surface is uneven and the air turbulence from the passing traffic felt like we could stumble into the road quite easily. The problem has been accruing for several years. The two worst stretch is from the top of Clandown to Skinner’s Hill.

    I would like to add my vote to this complaint. It’s incredibly narrow and uneven and the wind from passing cars threatened to suck my child into the road.

    This pavement is an accident waiting to happen. I walk this pavement daily and often get knocked off balance when tall vehicles speed past. It’s so dangerous, it needs addressing ASAP. This is a fast road and the pavement is unsafe and a danger to anyone who uses it
