Parking on Pavement Grass Verge

Reported in the Road and Pavement Issues category anonymously at 11:40, Friday 24 July 2020

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

Lorries are continually parking on this verge. As a direct result of lorries accessing building work at 59 Hayes Way a water main was ruptured. Large HGV's parking at this location are causing the mater main under the verge to break. Parking should be prevented by installing Bollards or wooden posts in the verge either side of Den Close on hayes Lane. This would be a long term solution. Impending development again at 59 Hayes Way and the adjacent property in Hayes Lane wil see these vehicles parking in such a way for a year or more as demolition work and building of three substantial properties is undertaken. When the water mains blow the properties in Den Close sustain substantial flooding which has occurred more than four times in the last eight years. Bollards would protect this vulnerable location..
