Pedestrian only restriction maliciously knocked down

Reported via mobile in the Road, Pavement and PROW Issues category anonymously at 20:05, Mon 20 September 2021

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

A couple of months ago a new section of fence was added here to prevent anything other than pedestrians using this footpath, which becomes incredibly churned up and muddy in the winter otherwise. Somebody appears to have objected, as it is now lying, smashed to the ground.

  • Many thanks for bringing this to our attention and I am aware of the damage. The repairs will be left because I have two new kissing gates being installed to try and stop cyclist using this public footpath. One will be installed at the Westerham Road end and the other at the Shire Lane end. This work will be carried out as soon as possible but no time scale can be given. Many thanks and kind regards, JPR - 27/09/2021

  • Although cyclists shouldn’t use the bridal path they clearly do. The lack of post almost led to the serious injury/death of a cyclist last week. Having alighted from a 320 at c7pm heading towards the footpath a cyclist came hurtling down straight into the road. By Inches he missed a car. The lack of post is clearly causing a dangerous situation. Hopefully no one will be killed before a new post is installed.
