Water rising up through crack in Bathwick Hill road surface and flowing across the road
Reported via mobile in the Flooding of a road or pavement category anonymously at 22:42, Mon 28 November 2022
Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 4001226.
Started a few days ago, water started welling up through a crack in the centre of this very busy road and streaming downhill and across it. This will turn to ice in a day or two which will make this a very dangerous stretch of road especially for bikes and escooters. Source unknown, could be from a new spring or a leaking water main.
Thank you for this report. We will review the details and carry out an inspection of the site if required.

This flow of water has as I feared now transformed into a sheet of ice. Especially dangerous for overnight and morning downhill traffic including numerous University and schoolchildren buses. I also reported this to Wessex Water. They confirmed the water does NOT come from a leaking mains pipe and its source is almost certainly a spring that needs diverting.
