Suggestion; consider future widening of key road

Reported via desktop in the Pavement Defect category by Richard Parry at 22:14, Sun 19 March 2023 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4332629.

As the owner of the following roads, could Bromley consider widening the following roads; Sheepbarn Lane > Jewels Hill > Saltbox Hill

The road is currently very narrow; there's no path for pedestrians, or to get access to/through for emergency services. The road can easily get blocked if a car breaks down, or if traffic from opposite sides push too close together.

In places, the road is several stories high with limited or no barriers, making it dangerous to go through at speed, or during low light or heavy rain. It's not suitable for buses, thus the regular delays and cancellations of the 464; our only route to Croydon borough and trams.

The land around this road is only empty woodland, so expanding it to a 2 lane road would be fairly easy. A wider road would be safer, and increase the speed of the buses going through. Ideally with a pavement and lighting, so people have an option to walk when there's no other option.

  • This report has been referred to our Traffic Management Team who are responsible for the way traffic is managed on Bromley's roads; including, but not limited to, implementing new road markings and signage in relation to road safety and parking; walking and cycling improvements, including identifying locations for new cycle racks and installing Vehicle Activated speed signs - however, please note that responsibility for enforcing speed limits rests with the Police.

    Where requests are made for changes, our Traffic Management Team will consider all requests but often there is a need for a full investigation, planning and consultation within the local area particularly around proposed new traffic schemes, and any considerations must be balanced with borough-wide priorities. This report is now closed on FixMyStreet and our Traffic Management Team will consider this matter.
