Reported via mobile in the Pothole or other road damage category anonymously at 08:31, Thursday 13 June 2024

Sent to Brent Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 6101992.

This section of road is a health hazard for all the people getting off the bus at the nearby stop it’s very deep and during rush hour especially people are falling over. Lots of children use this to go to the nearby school which is 4!

  • This problem has now been inspected. Limited Council resources mean that it is not possible to repair each and every defect, and we have to prioritise cases that pose the most risk to the public so a further assessment by officers is required. We hope to make a decision on this repair within the next 14 days and provide a further update. If this defect is selected for repair, our contractor will have a further 28 days to carry out the work

    Thank you for taking the time to report this defect and helping keep Brent a safer, more accessible place to live.

  • This is extremely dangerous as shown when this hole is dry it’s massive. But imagine when it’s raining you can barely see it, coupled with it being a high traffic route and people rushing between the bus stop and the train station it’s extremely dangerous. Its close proximity to two schools further heightens the risk of serious injury.

    It has been 28 days since reported and the council stated they will inspect and update within 14 days which has elapsed. Will this work be carried out within the next 14 days in accordance with their own guidelines?

    Budget cuts to road safety are not acceptable even if you think it’s a money saver and earner. You need to consider the wider impacts of poorly managed highways. They are used by motorists and pedestrians alike I’m sure the council does not want lawsuits left right and centre. This is a highly likely area for injury. So I suggest this is fixed as a matter of urgency.
