Very large pothole outside St Olaves School

Reported via desktop in the Road Defect category anonymously at 13:00, Fri 24 March 2023 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4354145.

The pothole appeared a few weeks ago but it is now growing bigger every day. With the daily school traffic you can hear cars hitting it regularly. I’m worried it may cause drivers to serve to avoid it and present a risk to the children who access the school via these gates. Hope it can be fixed soon. The zig zag lines also need repainting as many drivers ignore this very important safety markings.

  • This hole is still here and is much much deeper. You have to swerve to avoid it to prevent high risk of damage to wheel bearings or/and suspension.
