Foliage from a garden in Broomfield Road is overhanging the wall next to 82 Gravel Hill and is narrowing the pavement alongside the bus stop and is becoming a hazard to pedestrians.ll

Reported via desktop in the Obstructions on pavements and roads category anonymously at 12:39, Thursday 15 February 2024

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 5580935.

This problem is worse in wet weather when the weight of the rain on the foliage makes it even lower and more of a hazard, especially to the elderly and partially sighted. It has been a problem for several months and is getting worse.
