Poor road surface and potholes

Reported via mobile in the Potholes & road surface category anonymously at 08:21, Mon 16 January 2023

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 4133914.

The potholes and road surface on Paulmont Rise is truly shocking! It is a busy side road and it won’t be long before some serious damage will happen to a vehicle! As a member of the local Parish Council, I will be raising this issue at our next meeting.

  • The Road surface is badly potholed and requires resurfacing rather than the patching up we’ve had over the years!

  • They may have filled the two photos on the report but have missed the point of poor road surface! There are countless potholes on this residential road. Also, when the contractors left they failed to tidy up after themselves. Let’s hope it doesn’t rain soon - they road debris will wash into the drains and create further problems

    Still open, via questionnaire

  • The whole of Paulmont Rise needs resurfacing, I have lived here since it was first laid in the 1980's. it has just worn out,it has only been patched and then that does not last long.

  • This is the condition after the contractors filled the pot holes, road needs complete resurface not temporary patching all the time
