Poor Reinstatement Following Utility Works

Reported via desktop in the Road, Pavement and PROW Issues category anonymously at 09:49, Thu 7 October 2021

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

Following some utility works by the telegraph pole on the edge of the green at Bankside Close there is very poor reinstatement. Firstly they have just dumped earth in the hole whereas previously part of the part excavated was a concrete edging! They need to reinstate the concrete. Secondly having just filled with earth they have not reinstated the turf - this neds to be re-grassed. finally they have left various parts of wiring and electrical equipment over the grass as per the photo - they need to tidy up after themselves!

  • Thank you for your update legally we do have to allow a few months for the utility to rectify this before we can intervene further. a defect has been issued to BT to rectify this.

  • Hi - just a quick update - unsurprisingly BT have not carried out the reinstatement. 1 - Please advise the exact date at which you are allowed to intervene further as it is quite obvious that they are not going to do anything without being told to again. 2 - Please open this Report again and do not close it until the actual reinstatement has taken place - until then nothing has been "fixed".

  • Thank you for your report.it appears the defect issued to BT was issued at wrong location and subsequently another defect has been rectified outside 198 instead of this pole on the edge of the green of bankside. I have reissued the defect to BT for them to come and rectify this. I cannot give you an exact date as they need to plan these works in.

  • It's nearly 4 months since the last update and still the BT works have not been reinstated, I am fed up having to report this!

  • Thank you for your update. I have asked our streetworks inspector to contact BT to chase this defect repair.

  • Another month, still no reinstatement, it is now coming up for 8 months since this was initially reported. BT need to be told to carry out this reinstatement and fined for the delays.
