Obstructed pavement on Durley Hill
Reported via desktop in the Obstruction on road or pavement category by Edmund Cannon at 08:38, Fri 19 August 2022
Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3765833.
Durley Hill between the fire station and Kew Cottage, about 150 metres of pavement. There is a retaining wall, which has fallen down in places; even where it has not fallen down, earth has fallen over it. This has now been overgrown by vegetation, so the pavement (fairly narrow anyway) is halved in width. I womble here regularly and when passing another pedestrian someone must stand in the road or climb into the plants. There is no cycle path, so cyclists sometimes use the pavement. Visibility is poor for cars coming from Hicks Gate due to the curve and brow of hill, there is a 40mph speed limit, frequently exceeded, so this is quite dangerous.
Thank you for your report, it will be reviewed by the appropriate team.

Still no action on this. Footpath still half obstructed by soil, collapsed wall and leaf litter.

There is still no update on this (January 2023) and the path remains partially blocked. The road has both a blind bend and a blind hill. Cars come leave Hicks Gate roundabout and frequently exceed the 40 mph limit.
