Very badly sunk pavement caused by recent work on street lights

Reported via desktop in the Pavement damage category anonymously at 14:50, Tue 1 June 2021 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 2761425.

We recently had some work carried out on Whiteway Road to fix some faulty street lights. This has very quickly resulted in a collapsing and sunken pavement in the same spot. Which is besides number 145. This could be dangerous so could this please be looked into as a priority.

  • Some pictures attached, from today. Still not fixed. Rainwater will likely undermine it further.

  • Another 2 weeks have passed and not fixed. Please address when clearing nearby burnt out car debris. Both proving hazards.

  • Over 4 months now passed and not fixed. Winter is coming and no doubt rain and subsequent ice will worsen this and it may collapse further causing injury and or damage. Please sort ASAP.
