Poor Reinstatement

Reported via desktop in the Utility Works and Temporary Traffic Lights category anonymously at 11:12, Mon 10 October 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3879457.

Following recent Open Reach trench work the reinstatement is so poor that already the replacement tarmac has broken up and exposed the pipework. this is outside Number 28 Swievelands Road but applies to the whole run of trenching.

Please have the reinstatement redone.

  • A defect has been issued in relation to these works on the 12th of October and the relevant Utility has been notified and requested to return to rectify. It is in the best interest of the Utility to rectify this work expediently to ensure that multiple defects and associated fines are not issued. The London Borough of Bromley will continue to inspect the location until such time as the work is rectified

  • Please note that this has yet to be repaired and with the recent weather the hole has grown in size again creating a pot hole and exposing more of the pipework. On top of that its allowing water under our road to cause more potential damage that residents will have to deal with as an unadopted road. Its now been more than 3 months since this was reported. As the pot hole is getting bigger and could become dangerous either LBB need to ensure that the Utility company come back and deal or LBB themselves need to come and fill the hole. The delay in repair is unacceptable.
