  • Dear Bromley borough - I can see that the report has been already reported of the large deep pot hole. I had passed through that road on 30th Jan 2023 late in the evening when it was evening, As per the attached the pot hole has damaged my tyre on a BMW 760 LI which has low profile and I would like to put a claim toward the replacement cost. Please guide me further of the process.

  • 18 days after this was originally reported it has still not been resolved. There are no warning signs to indicate to drivers that the road is so dangerously damaged - and the pothole location makes it unavoidable. It is only a matter of time before a motorcyclist or cyclist is seriously injured with this pothole. This evening my car became the latest to be damaged - to both tyres and alloys. I will be pursuing a direct claim as I believe this to be negligence.
