Sunken speed bump on High Street

Reported via mobile in the Road Defect category anonymously at 21:40, Monday 5 June 2023

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4635791.

The drop down from the speed hump has sunk and when buses attack the speed hump (seemingly trying to hit it as fast and hard as possible), the shops and flats above vibrate and shake rather violently each time a bus or HGV flies over the bump. For the sake of the foundations and structural reliability of the properties the speed hump either needs smoothing out, removing entirely, but also bus drivers should probably be advised to approach it more slowly and carefully.

  • Still open, via questionnaire, 22:05, Monday 3 July 2023

  • What sort of timeframe are we looking at? Presumably there would have to be a road closure or lane closure in order to resolve?

    Would it be possible to advise Metrobus and other operators to take care and slow down over this bump until a resolution is enacted? It really is rather distracting and concerning having the building shake and I'm sure it isn't doing the foundations much good.
