  • Hi,

    Large Pothole near Shortlands station caused damage to my alloy wheel and tyre. Replacement has cost £200. Incident happened 18th January PM on south facing side of the road opposite Shortlands station.

    Some of the potholes on this road have been filled an others not. It is dangerous for drivers as they are hard to avoid.

    I am a mum using a run around car that is not worth much for the school run. The car, while an old model, is very road worthy and just passed its MOT however I have paid 10% of its value on a new alloy and tyre due to potholes not being given prompt and adequate attention by the council.

    I wish to put in a claim for compensation.

  • This has damaged my alloys!!! Fix the bloody road!! Car is old and not ulez but I don’t fancy spending money on new tyres just yet!

  • Why has this not been fixed yet? It was reported in Jan and it’s going to be April tomorrow. Surely the increase in council tax should cover this sort of thing!!

  • What is happening with these pot holes? The road was partially closed for roadworks but nothing was done about the potholes - why not? Please give a date this will be fixed as it was reported over 11 weeks ago!!!

  • There are still bad potholes at this junction. Why did it say they have been fixed?

    Posted anonymously at 06:08, Tue 13 June 2023

  • The Council conducts a programme of condition surveys and annual safety inspections of the highway network to identify those localities requiring minor repairs and major refurbishment works. All enquiries are investigated to ascertain the requirements for safety repairs and refurbishment works. In the latter case a street will be considered for a potential scheme as part of the Council’s Major Highway Maintenance Works Programme. At present, our current rolling programme does not feature the reported road in question. In the interim the condition of the highway will continue to receive regular safety inspections and any necessary work undertaken accordingly, specific issues in the road should be reported with location details as new reports via https://fix.bromley.gov.uk for investigation.

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