Pavement tarmac breaking up

Reported via desktop in the Pavement damage category anonymously at 19:36, Tue 9 November 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3114218.

I reported the pavement outside my elderly neighbours house in 2019 but still nothing has been done about it. Now the whole pavement is worse with large amounts of tarmac breaking up. There are uneven and chipped kerb stones and even a raised drain. Considering the average age of the people in our road is 80+ this in an accident waiting to happen. Rest assured if anyone ends up falling I will help them make a claim against the Councils negligence.

  • The whole of the pavement needs to be re-laid. It's like a patchwork quilt already and is very dangerous to our elderly residents who are challenged with their mobility and balance. An accident waiting to happen
