Sinking manholes

Reported via desktop in the Road Defect category anonymously at 09:46, Tuesday 28 June 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

Sinking drain cover in middle of road at bus shelter Bromley bound and another 10m above it at road junction. Dangerous especially for cyclists in dark or wet. You tell me these are Thames Water responsibility, but they are in your road! I have emailed Thames water 4 times without a response. Perhaps you could refer it for me as this is a H & S issue which Thames Water clearly aren't interested in seemingly, and perhaps they will act if referred by the Council?!.!!

  • Not fixed, but now marked out in white paint. Been reporting for YEARS and initially fobbed off with "it's Thames Water manhole, not ours!!!!!" Unbelievable,....but sadly, I believe it!
