Poor surface

Reported via desktop in the Damaged road category anonymously at 08:49, Sat 4 September 2021

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 2978058.

The surface has eroded over a 2m2 section of the east bound lane and causes vehicles to swerve top avoid it (when parked vehicles allows) or to struggle to maintain a straight line. This is particularly dangerous to PTS's and especially at night as the damage is in between street lights and therefore difficult to spot in the dark. It was reported to the council over a year ago but nothing has happened since.

  • The damage is almost invisible at night, but fortunately the parked cars over the "good" section to avoid the damage are usually gone and if you remember where the problem is you can avoid it. Not a good solution though! Damage is visible in Google Street View (see picture attached)

  • This road is deteriorating daily and is a hazard to drivers. Please fix potholes and stop cars parking down the dual carriage as they are increasing the danger. Require yellow lines to maintain the flow as its pointless having a dual carriage which is permanently a single lane due to cars parked daily

  • Still no indication that anyone has bothered to look at this (no paint on the carriageway).

  • Still no sign that this has been looked at. Only advantage now is that it is more like one big hole in the surface rather than several smaller ones joined together.
