I am reporting this issue again to ensure that it isn't ignored. I have been told, through a response here, that there is no path on this road, but there certainly should be. Other members of the local residents association have spoken to LB Bromley Neighbourhood Management recently and she has confirmed that the pavement towards Orpington needs reinstating and will pass on the request to the Assistant Director of Highways. I would appreciate it if this request were kept at the forefront of the Councils mind and would appreciate not receiving incorrect information or reports that indicate that work has been undertaken which also appears to not have happened (clearing vegetation etc). This road is incredibly dangerous and until there is a path reinstated on the route it will continue to be so.
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

As outlined on report: https://fix.bromley.gov.uk/ report/ 3151484 vegetation at this location has been cut back but there is no formal constructed footway here and the issue has been referred to our Traffic & Road Safety Team for consideration of any new footway.

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.

Thank you for the update. Can you please send through the reference for the maps or plans that outline where the paths and pavements should be? As far as I am concerned members of the local residence association have had direct conversations with a member of the LB Bromley Neighbourhood Management who has confirmed that there is a pavement on this road and that they are looking into having it reinstated.
