7 - 18 Union Road

Reported via mobile in the Pavement damage category anonymously at 10:56, Tuesday 18 June 2024

Sent to Brent Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 6121606.

I mean where to begin this road is completely broken, i'm sorry I did not have time to photo it so I got some 2020 photos of Google maps and it was shambolic then but now its got bits of kerb missing and loose, half the footpath is broken and a massive trip hazard, the other half is missing or loose. They needs urgent attention as its dangerous for people to walk on and for cars - as it is, its a narrow road but the chances of injury is huge, i'm surprised no one in this are reports it they must not clearly care about their door step or they don't know how to - please send in a team to fix this or repave this section - but in honestly its so messed up its probably cheaper to just replace the slabs since each and every slab is broken or damaged or missing thanks for your understanding and send out an engineer asap to look at it

  • Is this some sort of joke? It’s been apparently repaired!

    The council is acting in a corrupt fashion as usual. You mark work as completed so your statistics show you are completing work instead of stating the true picture of the state of the borough. This is clear evidence of the case. Lying to the people of Brent for 14 year Mr Butt and his cronies. However, it’s now a Labour government and Mayor so what’s the excuse.

    The issue at hand here is simple this road is ridiculous. Pedestrians have to use these roads and footpaths these are not parking spaces. The entire footpath is cracked, kerb missing, ripped and damaged tarmac. I don’t need to give you a description of this you can see it. We can only upload 3 photos at a time, so send a surveyor out too look at this mess of what you people call a road and pavement and it’s both sides of the street. If you would like use to do the surveying for you I’m happy to submit it to you via a proper firm at the cost to the council since you don’t seem to have them. Agree to paying up front and I’m happy to provide you a quote.

    The problem is clear cars don’t have drop kerbs they are driving over public footpath. You can make these households pay for drop kerbs. But you don’t charge them nor do you repair the footpaths. What is the game here? Wait till someone falls over and gets hurt. Young children, elderly people use these footpaths and this is a disgusting example of poor neighbourhoods being deprived of funding for basic services.

    Do the correct thing get the owners to install drop kerbs at the homeowners cost and relay the footpath at the councils cost. This is not fair for people using the roads and homeowners who actually pay for drop kerbs. You can deploy action notices to most of those houses using the footpath as a driveway. This is not always even about cost but laziness on the councils part.

    Get it sorted or this problem will not randomly disappear as you may think as most of the time it does in poor areas. We have to use these roads to actually go to work!
