Pot holes

Reported via iOS in the Road Defect category anonymously at 22:24, Tuesday 11 April 2023

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4427132.

The junction of Tower Road and Sevenoaks Road, Orpington the is about a five yard series of really bad potholes. The road is so bad that drivers are swerving in order to prevent going down the holes, I estimate the holes to be at least 2” deep up to 4” deep. If cyclists hit the holes it could very easily throw the rider off.

  • The largest pothole is now at least 10cms deep by 25 cm square. It is now VERY DANGEROUS. This contrasts with the Council completely resurfacing Tower Close, which also has pot holes by its junction with Todd Road.
