Wate Leak Hazard to the Public

Reported via desktop in the Road, Pavement and PROW Issues category anonymously at 12:45, Saturday 31 July 2021

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

This issue has been persisting for months. Suprisingly this is not already addressed

Water is leaking from an industrial unit (former car wash station) onto the pavment. Water flows right across

Slimy, green agae has formed. This is very dangerous for passers by. For blind or visually imparied memebers of public this is particularly hazardous

Pedestrians are forced to walk in the road or jump over the water that has built up

This is a long standing health and saftey issue

Please can this be looked at and resolved asap

The public pavement needs an immediate clean to remove the algae and reduce risk of slippage
