Roads

I've noticed that the roads in our village seem to be falling into quite a bad state of disrepair. Whilst there has been a new red patch added between the garage and the pub, the part that has sunk wasn't rectified first. It would nice to know if there any plans in place to have the roads repaired. I appreciate we are not the only place in the country with this type of issue.

I can only concur. Most of Underhill Road is like the Somme! Every now & then the holes are patched up. This lasts about a week before the road is covered in gravel from the repair & the hole is back. Not a permanent solution!

I did bump into a contractor measuring road condition on Charfield Hill the other day, who noted the condition of the main road including outside the garage but didn't hold out much hope for side streets.



Recent meetings with South Gloucestershire don't fill me with optimism with regard to road repairs. I know they're doing as much as they can, but they're doing it with vastly depleted resources. This is austerity, people, and it isn't due to improve any time soon. :-/



The best thing I can offer is that everyone reports, and keeps reporting, damage to the road and pavement network via the South Gloucestershire "Report It" page [external link]

Fantastic to see Underhill Rd etc. being fully re-surfaced as I type. Personally, I have never had a bad word to say about South Glos Council :-)

And a good job they have made of it; well worth the absolute mayhem of trucks and tippers parked all over Manor Lane. However I do wonder at the rather surprising decision to only repair half of the road, surely with all the plant and machinery and manpower thrown at the job, it would have been cost-effective to finish the job.

Cost effective maybe, but as I understand it they had sufficient funds to do what they did and no more. I'm happy we got some new road surface at all, in these times I didn't think I'd live to see black tarmac in Charfield...

Little Bristol Lane is pretty poor too and rapidly deteriorating. I have flagged some of the problems to South Glos using the link that Mark provided. I laid it on pretty thickly (excuse the pun) because some of the ruts are a real hazard for cyclists. Would be interesting to know what the legal position would be if someone made a claim after they had been notified of a problem? I agree Charfield Hill is a real problem - only a matter of time until there is a serious consequential accident in my opinion.
