Badly repaired damaged kerb near CATV Inspection pit

Reported via desktop in the Road, Pavement and PROW Issues category by Ronald Goodfellow at 14:08, Fri 19 November 2021

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

The damaged kerb was reported, and the Council informed us that the repairs were completed by 7th March 2020. However due to the following: • The location of the CATV inspection pit is too close to the edge of the road. Why was this location approved? • Due to the above a non-standard precast unit (5cm wide) was used instead of a standard kerb stone (10cm wide, with a bullnose edge, not sharp edge). Why was this approved? The repair(s) have three defects 1 Misalignment of the precast unit 2 Attempts to remedy this by chipping the edges, leaving hazardous sharp edges 3 No protection during setting of the concrete hence dog paw prints, foot marks and cracks which have now broken up the repairs (see photograph for details) Further attempts were been made to carry out the repair using the same methods. We have not had access to our parking area since February 2020 and the photographs taken show the current unsatisfactory state of the repairs.
