There’s some good news coming out of Bridge Street in Bath where B&NES has been investigating reports of depressions in the road.
Seems the cellars beneath have not been crumbling and that the line of depressions seem to have more to do with previous patching where water has seeped under the repaired road surface.
There’s a bit of an excavation near Pulteney Bridge where the worse depression is being dug out and repaired. Others in the coned off section will also be repaired while the road restriction is in place.
Let’s hope for dry weather.
Meanwhile, around the corner – on Grand Parade – another group of contractors were arriving to deal with a depression there. Let’s hope – again – that its water ingress and not crumbling cellars.
Spotted another pot-hole – in another street – which has revealed the original surface underneath. Maybe that should be restored instead of filling in tarmac holes?
