Tree roots

Reported via desktop in the Tree roots lifting pavement category anonymously at 11:12, Thursday 8 June 2023 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4646325.

Tree roots are cracking pavements outside my house, cracking my front wall and is an extremely dangerous hazard for pedestrians. Especially for older people like myself. We have an elderly gentleman who goes out every day with his walker to keep his self agile and he has to cross the the road because the pavement is so dangerous where the tree roots occupy half the pavement and the rest is so bumpy and uneven.This is a accident waiting to happen !!!!!!!!
