Broken vehicle access gate Jct Townley Rd / The Broadway

Reported via desktop in the Other street furniture category anonymously at 14:47, Tue 14 November 2023

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 5210926.

The vehicle access gate post has been damaged preventing the gate from being locked closed. This presents a significant danger to the padestrianised high-street from marauding terrorist attacks and has been identified as medium risk by the Metropolitan Police due to the danger this poses to the public.

The gate is unable to be locked closed allowing traffic to enter The Broadway freely. Previous attempts to repair the gate have not been sufficient and have allowed the post to still move freely meaning the gate can be pushed open.

  • The gate is still broken. No apparent attempts have been made to fix this issue. The gate remains unsafe and unable to be locked shut. This is a high footfall pedestrian area and falls part of the counter terrorism risk assessment for the area.
