Dumped shopping trolley

Reported via desktop in the Obstructions on pavements and roads category anonymously at 21:37, Thursday 14 October 2021

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 3063331.

I reported 2 trollies blocking alley 189 in Welling, only 1 was removed, the other one left. Vandals have now balanced the remaining trolley on the railings over the footpath, where it could fall on a child attending the local primary school at any second !

Why did the contractor only remove 1 and not both? Need to do the job properly 1st time.

This is now a clear and present danger to all footpath users.

  • Here we are, a month later, and the trolley is still there. Pushed over the fence and now hanging in a bush on Network Rail land. Still, it will slowly rust and rot away over many years and poison the ground for decades to come.

    If only someone had reported it on the day it was dumped and a contractor had collected it and not gone for the easy option of pushing it over the fence and leaving it.
