Church Road has been the main thoroughfare through Bishop’s Cleeve for generations and rests at the heart of our village; being home to local businesses that cater for our growing community.
Due to chronic underinvestment in our roads in recent years, the surface has begun to deteriorate to a point where it has become a danger to pedestrians and road users. Many local people have suffered damage to their vehicles due to potholes. A number of cyclists have reported injuries – with one suffering serious damage to their arm – due to the shocking state of the road surface.
Residents, organisations, and the Parish Council have reported these issues time and time again, only for the potholes reported to be hastily filled in with no lasting effect. One recent pothole was so poorly filled that the repair had eroded less than a week after the job was completed.
With the road’s surface so poor, we call on Gloucestershire County Council to resurface the road section stated to help keep people safe and to protect their property from continual damage.
