  • Nearly a month now and no work carried out. If issue is with Thames Water please can the council make the road safe until they fix it? A danger to motor bikes and cyclists particularly but cars swerving to avoid so a serious hazard.

  • Good to hear some action will finally be taken but as part of the damage is within the pedestrian crossing and at least 2 inches deep is leaving it another week good enough?

  • Pot hole is still there. Is it really good enough for the council to allow the road to be left in a dangerous condition after all these reports? I don't care if it's the responsibility of Thames Water. I pay my council tax to Bromley, the road is in Bromley, so Bromley need to make it safe! Have Bromley even been to inspect the road damage either before the Thames Water fix date of 11th Oct or after? If they bothered to check the work was completed they'd find out it's actually been left and now a lot worse! Try driving up the hill and straight over the lights without a thundering bang and judder as you crash through the undavoidable hole in the road!
