Protruding tree roots becoming trip hazard!

Reported via desktop in the Pavement Defect category anonymously at 16:39, Tue 19 September 2023

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5010759.

The 'pavement tree' outside number 70 is gradually growing thru the tarmac and we have seen a couple of pedestrians stumbling. Fortunately they have not fallen, but I fear that before long there will be an accident.

  • The area of the protruding tree roots has been marked with white outline, I guess this means that the problem has been recognised, and hopefully work will start soon. Thank you.

  • Thank you for keeping us updated. We look forward to the repairs being done. Some of the tarmac has now started to break away from around the roots causing even more problems with loose bits!
