Road Surface very poor

Reported in the Road defect category anonymously at 18:14, Sun 25 September 2016

Sent to Bromley Council 1 minute later

The road surface is very poor - the close and adjacent roads / junction viz. St Andrews Drive and The Greenway need urgent attention. We suffer from lorries turning for deliveries to the shops at Carlton Parade and high volume of traffic. Please move it up in your maintenance schedule as a matter of urgency as the roads are rapidly deteriorating along with the curbstones; I note a few months ago you resurfaced Gilroy Way...why oh why as the road surface was very good, indeed fantastic when compared with Willow Close, The Greenway and St Andrews Drive. Please explain how / why this had greater priority in your maintenance schedule given the low volume of traffic... truly poor prioritising!?

  • Usual bland response from Bromley Council; fob off somewhat. Please can the council advise when in their schedule of major highway maintenance sits i.e. Date, as it could be years away, meanwhile no explanation why Gilroy Way was resurfaced which frankly did not need any repair?

  • Schedules and priorities for any works will be determined at a forthcoming Highways Maintenance Project Board and cannot be given at this time.

  • No change and still no explanation how the Highways Maintenance Project Board determined Gilroy Way needed resurfacing, when clearly it did not and other roads, viz. area raised in question did?

  • But in fairness the council have responded in some detail which has at least explained how the council have arrived at the current position of no action. The council are keen for this to go through the complaints​ process, but given that this will achieve nothing as any roadworks have to pass a priority process, which despite the pitiful state of the road/ junction it is not deemed a priority. So only option is to either stop submitting this which of course suits the council, out of sight etc...or continue in order to keep it on the council's radar

  • The road / junction has detoriated even further, now with potholes etc as per photos added. Suspect council will continue to do nothing especially as this update is not sent to them.

  • As before, Bromley council not interested as not deemed a priority. Now some dangerous pot holes formed and between 15 & 16 Willow close, curb has fractured (near drain grating) withbroken part, runs into dip / well which fills up with water (probabaly caused the curb to disintegrate) with crack in road escalating, all becoming dangerous for pedestrians.
