  • I have just encountered this pothole and it has damaged my tyre. It will cost me £100 to replace and I look to the council to reimburse me for that.

  • I have watched this hole get bigger and bigger every day for over 2 weeks. This is now a major hazard which could cause a fatal injury to a cyclist (motor or pedal) or serious damage to a car. This is now bordering on complete negligence by Bromley council given it is such a busy road. At least get some signage to warn road users!

  • Yes, it has been fixed but poorly and one would expect it will degrade very quickly

    Posted anonymously at 11:44, Mon 3 April 2023

  • Fixed? But for how long? Already sinking.
