2 ft pot hole
Reported via mobile in the Road Defect category anonymously at 14:42, Saturday 28 May 2022
Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later
As you enter Cherry Tree Walk from Brammerton Rd, there is a large pot hole, causing myself and other vehicles to swerve onto the wrong side of the road towards the oncoming traffic. i have almost hit an oncoming vehicle on a number of occasions avoiding the large pot hole which has been gradually getting bigger for a number of months.
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 report originator should draw to a halt to let the oncoming traffic pass before pulling on to the ‘wrong’ side of the road whilst the pot hole is present. Knowingly risking a road traffic accident is irresponsible.

I will be taking legal action against Bromley council if I have an accident or damage my vehicle as a result of the large pothole which has been present for many months, the hole is on a blind spot the moment you enter the road. As I am aware of it I always take care not to veer into oncoming traffic maybe someone should try driving the route i mentioned then reply rather than giving a reply like I just received which seems like a threat!!!

The report stated “... causing myself ... to swerve onto the wrong side of the road ... I have almost hit an incoming vehicle on a number of occasions ...” which is contradictory to “ ... I always take care not to beer into oncoming traffic ...”
I drive along that route regularly and draw to a halt before the pothole to allow oncoming traffic to pass safely.

Isn’t the purpose of reporting pot holes especially large dangerous holes so that Bromley council repair, that’s exactly what I try to do, however at peak times there is often cars parked either side and cars often drive t behind me often very closely I try to avoid suddenly stopping whilst still obeying the Highway Code but the hole will cause a accident eventually which was why I reported it!!!
