Walcot Parade. Junction of Margaret's Hill and London Road

Reported via desktop in the Railings, bollard, & post damage category by John Revell at 12:12, Sun 15 October 2023

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 5098910.

At this junction the pavement fencing and the stonework in which it is embedded have been displaced, presumably by a reversing vehicle. The cast-iron end post now overhangs London Road.

  • The end post is hanging from a connection at a single point, which must be under strain from the post's weight. If the connection fails the post will fall into London Road and could be a hazard, particularly to two-wheeled vehicles.

  • The next post now looks rather weak too. Any update from the report (nearly 3 months ago) please?
