Sunken stop valve cover outside 33 Axminster Crescent

Reported via mobile in the Utility equipment category anonymously at 14:20, Mon 27 June 2022

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 3627272.

Stop valve cover is sinking and is causing a trip hazard to my pregnant wife and 2 year old son, as well as other people with pushchairs etc. It is quite badly sunken and we have to avoid driving over it in case it gets worse. This has been getting progressively worse for a few months now

  • Sunken stop valve cover has now been very poorly covered in tarmac. Ground is still not level whatsoever and now the stop valve is inaccessible. What happens if there is a need to turn the valve off? This is unacceptable and an absolutely ridiculous decision by someone. The problem if anything has been made worse

  • Nearly a month has passed since the decision was made to cover the stop valve cover with tarmac (poorly). This has now also started to sink and crumble slightly as well. This is now adding to the trip hazard for my heavily pregnant wife and 2 year old son, as well as every other less able person walking by.

    This problem definitely has not been fixed and is still there, slowly getting worse.
