Pot hole and drain sinking on road

Reported via mobile in the Road Defect category anonymously at 06:36, Thursday 9 May 2024 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5949146.

This is in addition to another pothole reported nearby (a homeowner highlighting an issue about their driveway).

The road outside 11 Clifford Avenue has deteriorated badly in recent months. There is significant pothole undulation stretching halfway across the road, and the drains / in-road manhole covers are now protruding and will start to be damaged soon, if not already.

Most worryingly is this is a significant trip hazard for the children who attend Babington House, whose main entrance is directly opposite this hazard.

I have seen two children trip on this during this week alone, and it will only be a matter of time until this causes a significant and tragic accident.

Please repair it urgently.
