Potholes at junction

Reported via desktop in the Road Defect category anonymously at 08:55, Fri 10 March 2023

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4297220.

Potholes at the junction make it difficult for cyclists leaving Penge Lane. Stopping to check for traffic left and right, and then starting off one immediately hits a rut/pothole and easily unsteadied as a result.

  • This still hasn't been fixed. The degree of damage and the location should make this a priority, according to HIAMP guidance as this is a difficult enough junction as it is for cyclists where there have been two collisions in the last three years within a few metres of this cratered, patched and deteriorating road surface. Coming off the bike here on the turn into Penge Lane with a car on your tail is a distinct possibility.

  • A month since this was first reported and nothing has been done. Potholes now about 12 foot in length in the bus lane. Dangerous for cyclists at an already dangerous junction.

  • Safety inspections? Surely they conclude it is not safe?! This is just one of many many potholes reported to Bromley Council that are outstanding for weeks.

  • If your contractor has too much work on, get another in to help with the work. You luxuriated in spending £140K of our money on challenging the Mayor over Ulez, so please now knock your heads together to "comply with relevant statutory requirements" yourselves, for the safety of Bromley cyclists and pedestrians, as well as for the benefit of motorists in Penge, whose tyres and patience are wearing thin.
