My husband fell

Reported via desktop in the Road, Pavement and PROW Issues category anonymously at 20:07, Monday 25 April 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

On Saturday 23rd my husband was walking down our road Alpine Copse BR1 2AW ans was turning into Merewood, he tripped on one of the many cracked and raised and broken pavements in our road and also in Merewood. You really need to send someone out to look, my sister when she walks up to see me , walks in the road for safety in Merewood and Alpine copse. The pavements are really bad, many many are broken ..some raised (which is how he fell) He really did cut himself on both hands elbows and knees. I am amazed he didnt break something. bad, I have taken loads of photos but can only seem to attach 3. Please come and look as next time someone might be very seriously hurt and I am sure you dont want that!

  • Works raised at time of inspection remain outstanding with our contractors and are awaiting completion. The investigatory levels for repair in the footway are trips of 20mm or above, or if the slabs are loose and rocking severely. Paving is not replaced if just cracked. In the Carriageway it is for localised immediate vertical deflections measuring 30mm deep or more in the trafficked directions. This does not mean that all defects that reach this level will be repaired, just that they may be considered for repair.

  • Resident said is not happy with the response as she said her husband fell and the paving slabs are sticking up and also the carriageway is cracking up. she is not happy that alpine copse is not being repaired as that is as bad s her husband fell and hurt himself. she does not accept that alpine copse is not going to be done as both sides are bad and would like it to be investigated again and please can you you respond to the residnet why alpine copse is not being done. he fell on the right hand side of alpine copse
