  • When will this deteriorating ‘trench’ be fixed?

    Why is it taking so long to do these basic maintenance repairs?

    Why, given your comments reported in the Newsshopper newspaper (page 5 May 22nd edition) are you, Bromley Council seemingly unable (or is it unwilling?) to ‘practice what you “preach”….’


    “….the reality is that we have a methodical and logical process for repairs….we have reduced the number of potholes very considerably….”

    Is quite frankly ‘laughable’….there are tens in not hundreds of long reported unfixed holes and trenches in Chislehurst alone……walk along the busy A222 from the Frognal roundabout west…..and count them!

    Photos attached taken 8am Friday 24 May.

    Please advise WHEN this ‘trench’ will be fixed.

    How many potholes are filled in Chislehurst Ward per week one wonders……does Bromley Council have the figures?
