Crofton Place Estate - The enterance/exit I have marked to/from the Crofon Estate is causing road blocks and heavy congestion. One cannot pass as both sides of the roads are used for resedential parking. People visit the shops and when they do sometimes the park part pavement/road, or have to back up to let others pass. Can you please review the parking situation on the crofton estate and at the bottom of Andover Road. I have previously sent a message regarding the issue with parking at the bottom of Allington Road and the difficulty one has when passing the R7 bus on the estate bus route. I've had to straddle the car on the pavement just so the bus could get around the corner. If you are not prepared to paint double yellow lines on one side of the roads at least consider painting the corners. Where I live now they park double sided which if an ambulance or fire engine wants to get through it cannot. In 2020 this happened and we had to knock around on houses so the ambulance could get into Ferndown Ave. Fortuntely the ambulance was not on a blue light. Also note each property on the estate has a garage and some can be used to park in front of. Please look into this matter. Regards.
Thank you for your report, this is now being investigated. Information on our services and the timeframes we aim to respond in can be found: http://www.bromley.gov.uk/ fixservices

This report has been referred to our Traffic Management Team who are responsible for the way traffic is managed on Bromley's roads; including, but not limited to, implementing new road markings and signage in relation to road safety and parking; walking and cycling improvements, including identifying locations for new cycle racks and installing Vehicle Activated speed signs - however, please note that responsibility for enforcing speed limits rests with the Police.
Where requests are made for changes, our Traffic Management Team will consider all requests but often there is a need for a full investigation, planning and consultation within the local area particularly around proposed new traffic schemes, and any considerations must be balanced with borough-wide priorities. This report is now closed on FixMyStreet and our Traffic Management Team will consider this matter.
