Outside No.80 Princes Plain. A tree root has pushed the pavement up so you have to go up-and-over it. Tarmac has been used previously to fix the problem but this has now broken down as can be seen in the photos and a hole has appeared which is growing day by day. I witnessed a man on a motorised wheelchair topple over while trying to pass this tree. Can this be made safe for pedestrians and wheelchair users please?
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

The area in question has been cordoned off since last week necessitating pedestrians walking out into the road. No work has been carried out, as yet!
