  • It is now 60 days since this pothole was reported and passed to your contractor. It should have been dealt with within 35 days. Why is it still outstanding? Not acceptable.

  • Totally unaceptable! The Avenue, Plaistow Lane, Westmorland road, Southlands Road and many more, this list is endless. Southlands Road is used by dustcarts up and down to the dump, the heavy vehicles are chirning up the road! What I would like to know is what are we actually paying road tax for? I’ve always been under the impression the payment for road tax is to keep the roads fit to dirve on; simply not happenning!

  • It is now 87 days since this pothole was reported - more than double the 35 days in which it should have been fixed. It doesn't even seem to have been marked up for repair. What is going on? Negligence by Bromley Council/Riney.
