This drain issue has been outstanding for well over a year. Any chance of a fix before Christmas (2024). That would be a nice Xmas present for Bromley ratepayers!

  • Still not been fixed, in the meantime the pothole around the drain is getting bigger. Root cause is a water leak that no one can be bothered to find/remediate.

  • What about the holes round the drain cover, or are you looking at the wrong drain?

  • The potholes are repaired by the Highways department - please open a new report highlighting only the pothole around the gully, otherwise it will be sent to the drainage team. Thank you,

  • This has been reported many times this year. I suggest YOU now assign it to the appropriate dept, to fix with all the other potholes in Shire Lane!
