Pedestrian crossing kerbs in the middle of the road near the Longmeadow Road junction

Reported via mobile in the Obstruction on road or pavement category anonymously at 10:00, Thursday 24 November 2022

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3989356.

For the umpteenth time ( I know of at least 10+ instances), cars have struck the kerb on the crossing which is in the middle of the slight chicane approaching the Longmeadow Road junction. This has caused vehicle drivers to have both front and rear driver side tyres replaced on most occasions. When I walk down Charlton Road I never use this crossing as I fear that I may get struck by a vehicle but favour the wider, safer crossing further down which is on the straight part of the road. As well as the unnecessary expense to drivers, I fear that one day there will be a huge accident, possibly fatal and potentially involving a person trying to cross thinking the crossing is safe . The whole junction needs attention. A busy main road shouldn’t have a crossing on a chicane and possibly, there shouldn’t be a sharp protruding piece of land in that area anyway, but a straight road layout. I have noticed chips on the side of the crossing but I haven’t taken any pictures of it but happy to do so if necessary
