One way Planter hit/blocking cycle lane

Reported via desktop in the Street Lighting and Road Signs category anonymously at 12:11, Monday 16 May 2022 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

I'm not too sure how this has happened (I assume it's deliberate at this point), but someone has managed to move the one-way planter sign completely out of position and its now completely blocking the cycle lane and is up against the pavement. There doesn't appear to be any damage so I someone is pushing it out of position on purpose? The metal fixtures in the road are now exposed and could be dangerous.

  • Cyclists are now forced to go into head on traffic, on the wrong side of the road, to get around the planter.

  • I would add that the bit of road that cyclists now have to divert into has metal brackets sticking up which could cause a crash or serious injury if fallen on.

  • I cycled passed this planter this morning (19/5/22) and it was still blocking the cycle lane for a third day. This lane had already been made more dangerous to use with the removal of the reflective bollards along this stretch of Albemarle Rd.

  • Dear Bromley Council, I was sent an email today telling me that the cycle path planter blockage issue on Albemarle road had been resolved. Given that it has not been removed - only had yellow barriers placed around it - how is this 'resolved'? Is this how Bromley Council treats cyclists?

  • Please accept my apologies. The contractor has had instructionsto return and reset the planter in the correct position. Traffic Department still wants this planter retained.

  • This picture was taken last week and I passed the planter this morning (20/6/22) and it was just the same - out of position. Surely a road sign not in it's intended position is illegal. Either way, this issue is clearly NOT FIXED.

  • The issue has been re-attended and additional works completed. If the issue re-occurs please re-report via: https://fix.bromley.gov.uk

  • The planter has now been removed. Resolved, no further action required.
