Bird fouling and feathers at Birkbeck Bridge

Reported via iOS in the Street Cleansing and Litter category anonymously at 10:46, Wednesday 21 September 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

The area under the bridge and adjacent footpaths are a disgusting mess , littered with bird fouling and feathers from moulting pigeons . This is a persistent problem yet doesn’t appear to be addressed through the Street Cleansing contract . The local community group has gone to considerable effort to try to make the area look attract and welcoming by planting flowers under the street trees and commissioning a mural under the bridge . Given this is a recurring problem the bridge area should be in the street cleansing contract for a periodic clean .

  • Thank you for your additional comments,

    The councils service providers undertake jet washing in this area at the beginning of every month and the area is also swept as per the cleansing schedule. Bromley Council also liaise with Network Rail over the installation of netting and where Network Rail agree that such an installation will not impede their structural engineers from inspecting and assessing elements of the structure.
