Multiple problems along on the southern side of Bathwick Hill for 300m uphill and downhill of this location.

Reported via mobile in the Pavement damage category anonymously at 14:21, Tue 26 September 2023

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 5033564.

Sunken, broken up and uneven York Stone pavement throughout that’s also overgrown with weeds. Hazardous to walk down, and slippery when wet. In some places the road surface resulting from the most recent road resurfacing work is now higher than the pavement, making the pavement impassable with flowing water runoff from the road during rainy weather.

  • 1. The reason the rainwater flows over the pavement on Bathwick Hill is that only about a quarter of the grating is effective. Most of it has been installed higher than the level of the gutter. This ought to be fixed. 2. This particular drain (as shown on the map) is blocked as well. This needs to be unblocked. 3. Negligent road surfacing in the past has raised the road height and reduced the height of the kerb, so excess rainwater flows over the pennant stones. The height of the kerbs need to be restored. 4. Higher up the hill (past Woodland Place) another drain is blocked, which could lead to rain saturating the walls of the vaults of Woodland Place - their front walls are below one side of the pavement. This too needs to be unblocked.
