At lease 10 potholes on this very steep hill

Reported via mobile in the Potholes & road surface category anonymously at 11:27, Friday 1 October 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3035743.

These potholes have been there all summer and are getting worse. The suspension on our cars are now being affected by this. Also the gully which runs the whole length of this hill down the right hand side is completely blocked causing the water run off to go on to our private road bringing all the debris with it blocking our drains. The bank that runs down the right hand side is completely overgrown scratching our vehicles. This already very narrow road has narrowed even more because of of this overgrown hedging and the blocked gully causing the residents and visitors and delivery drivers to drive onto a neighbours garden and some delivery drivers are refusing to drive down this hill. I am currently in cancer treatment and had to call an ambulance, they had to park at the top of this hill and get my husband to put me in our car to transport me up the hill to them . Please would you arrange for this hill to be cleared and repaired ASAP .

  • Road is in very poor condition, the surface has deteriorated as it has been many years since the road as been resurfaced. Due to the steepness of the hill the road has become more dangerous to drive up in poor/autumn weather. The road will need to be resurfaced as soon as possible.
