  • Our contractor has been notified to take the appropriate action.

  • One month on and nothing has been done about these: They are getting much worse. When there's a fatality due to cars / cyclists swerving to avoid them, I hope this report can be used to hold the council accountable.

  • Thank you for your further comments regarding this issue. Bromley are aware of the significant volume of works raised and outstanding with our contractor and we are continuing to monitor and liaise with them over this outstanding schedule of works. Our Officers are not able to give precise timeframes to individual jobs at this moment but are continuing to undertake regular safety inspections and check any reported issues. We will continue to work with our contractor to ensure that all outstanding jobs are addressed as quickly as they are able.

  • Maybe you could pay the contractors some of the £2.5 million you've made from yellow box fines (of which the yellow box in this EXACT location was in the top two) this past year? That might hurry them up a bit? In any case, this has all been screen grabbed and will be used as evidence when an accident inevitably happens here due to Bromley Council's negligence and dereliction of duty.

  • This area has been like a disaster zone for months, potentially 6-8 months. It's still a very dangerous stretch of road for more vulnerable road users as cars swerve the pot holes. I've given up hope this will be fixed this side of the next millennium.

    Still open, via questionnaire

  • Bromley Council, please advise how we can get a specific update on this, rather than just copy-and-paste template responses, which we know are being rolled out as a delaying tactic. Do we need to submit a freedom of information request to find out which contractors you use and what timescales have been discussed / set in place? This has gone on for way too long now and it needs to be escalated: you need to provide some transparency in terms of timescales because residents aren't willing to put up with this any longer.

  • More info here for anyone that wants to follow it up: the council uses JB Riney as a contractor - you can contact them for an update via enquiries@jbriney.co.uk. And if you want to make a formal complaint and / or register your concerns with the council re this pothole and others in the area, you can do so by emailing csc@bromley.gov.uk. They have to respond within five days. The more people that contact them, the more chance we have of getting these issues fixed. Sadly, it looks like people power / pressure is the only route left now: the fact we pay millions in council tax on top of all the funding they've been granted from government to fix these issues is having no effect.
