Obstructed highway

Reported via mobile in the Road, Pavement and PROW Issues category anonymously at 22:49, Saturday 15 January 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

There is a collection of TM cones partially blocking the eastbound carriageway of Barnet Wood Road by the entrance to Petts Wood football club. The road is quite narrow for two way traffic at the best of times and the loss of road space causes havoc, particularly during the morning rush, when vehicles are attempting access to Baston School. I have not observed ongoing road works since the cones were on site. Can enquiries be made to ascertain if the works are now completed, and if the traffic management is no longer required arrange immediate collection.

  • The TM cones have now been removed just the sign displaying the permit number remains which has been repositioned into the hedge. Would have been completed if that sign had been recovered too.

  • We have investigated this report and found the location is not the responsibility of Bromley Council (such as private property or an unadopted road). We are unable to progress this report further and advise you contact the responsible party.

    State changed to: third party responsibility

  • As advised the TM cones have been removed. However, you are wrong to suggest Barnet Wood Road is either private or unadopted and not your responsibility. Suggest next time you expand the attached photographs. The obstruction was to your carriageway and was therefore your responsibility to investigate fully with the permit holder for which your highway department would have contacts details and certainly not the ‘author’ of this report.

  • The location was inspected and confirmed that there is no further obstruction to the highway with the permit sign now moved to the private land of the football ground.

    State changed to: No further action

  • The sign is in the same location as it was yesterday and is not on private land but on the grass verge that is the responsibility of LBB. It is actually within the conservation area as shown on the map. Please arrange it’s recovery.
