Road sign obscured by vegetation

Reported via mobile in the Overhanging Vegetation from private land category anonymously at 12:15, Fri 23 June 2023 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4708254.

The road sign approaching the Crofton Lane mini roundabout from the west is obscured by conifers from the flats and a newly planted council tree (lack of joined up thinking). Please arrange for the conifers to be cut back and the council tree to be moved (otherwise there's no point having the road sign).

    Neighbourhood management will write to the owners of the flats and request that the conifers are trimmed back from the sign.

  • We will contact the owners of the conifer trees to cut back from the highway sign which will take several weeks. The newly planted tree will not be moved at this time and we will monitor the sign visibility.
