  • This report has been referred to our Traffic Management Team who are responsible for the way traffic is managed on Bromley's roads; including, but not limited to, implementing new road markings and signage in relation to road safety and parking; walking and cycling improvements, including identifying locations for new cycle racks and installing Vehicle Activated speed signs - however, please note that responsibility for enforcing speed limits rests with the Police.
    Where requests are made for changes, our Traffic Management Team will consider all requests but often there is a need for a full investigation, planning and consultation within the local area particularly around proposed new traffic schemes, and any considerations must be balanced with borough-wide priorities. This report is now closed on FixMyStreet and our Traffic Management Team will consider this matter.

  • Traffic Light on junction of Main Road, Biggin Hill & Lebanon Gardens is standing on an island which has been damaged for some time. Blue road barriers have been erected around the island and these have damaged and moved causing obstruction to traffic turning right out of Lebanon Gardens. The road is narrow at this point and heavy traffic keeps knocking the barriers further into the road.

  • Glad that someone also has reported this. It really needs urgent attention. Do we have to remind you that if damage is caused to a vehicle, cycle or pedestrian, the Council could be held responsible.

  • We have investigated this report and found it to be the responsibility of Transport for London (TfL) who are responsible for maintaining and adjusting traffic signals. We have therefore referred the report to TfL. Future reports can be made directly to TfL via: https://reportit.tfl.gov.uk/ roadworks

    State changed to: third party responsibility

  • That sounds rather ridiculous. They may adjust the timing of traffic lights, but the actual structure of the island is surely a council roadways matter. I hope that you have made TfL aware that this is an important matter.
