Pavement

Sue Luxton's written that Tressillian Road is due to be repaved and has compiled a list of the area's other paving issues which she's keeping an eye on.

Brockley Road, Greatfield Close, Brockley Grove / Huxbear Road and Ladywell Road are among those on her list of offending roads.

We've already had one twitterer lobbying for Geoffrey Road to be resurfaced, so which roads are the most in need? In addition to endorsing the Geoffrey Road nomination, we'd like to suggest that the pavement outside the Tea Factory is an absolute disgrace, particularly as there ought to have been an obligation for the developer to finish the pavement properly as part of the building works.

Tressillian Road is awful - potholes left, right and centre. It's like an army assault course - my car is not happy!!

Huxbear Road isn't currently paved at all, so I'm not sure if it can be REpaved!

Drakefell Road is rather wonky pavement wise.

Tyrwhitt Road outside the Talbot has been wrecked by brewer's delivery lorries over many years and is seriously dangerous.

Strangely it has not got any worse over the last six months or so.

Sue said...

Er, no, that's not quite what I've done Nick; I don't have the complete list of proposed resurfacing works to hand: I've just posted updates on the specific highways issues in Ladywell ward that I've been following up on.

Brockley Nick said...

Sorry Sue, now corrected.

Sue said...

thanks!

Pavements are being replaced at the intersection of St Asaph Rd and Avingnon Rd and it makes a huge difference. If only the little shop there would cheer up its facade it would all look rather splendid.

I think most of the roads in the conservation area are a nightmare, some worse than others. Manor Ave is a patchwork of tarmac of various vintages. A lot of new potholes have opened up since the snowy weather and exisiting ones are now much larger.

There's a horrific pothole at the junction of New Cross Rd and Avonley Rd/Kender St. It's right in the gutter but it's like a crater. For a while there was a traffic cone plonked in it, but the council has now half filled it, but not completely, so it's by no means level with the rest of the road surface. It's a complete death trap for cyclists passing along there in the dark - you just can't see it til you plunge into it and almost get thrown off in front of passing traffic

Cranfield Road should be the benchmark. That road is in mint condition.

And Wickham Road. I quite like the new signs, and as far as I can see the yellow lines are only there to stop people (usually white van men) parking on corners - sounds perfectly sensible.

What does Lewisham Borough Council do for Brockley Central readers?

Tyrwhitt Michael said...

I have signed the petition although it is a bit of a fraud as I only visit Coulgate Street once a year for the Christmas Fair.

Too far west for us east side Brockleyites who rely on the delights of Loampit Vale for our local shopping.

And I seem to have a double posting problem.

repaved or resurfaced?

the road needs resurfacing.

as does Tyrwhitt.

if Green councillors ie those outside the majority group on lewisham COuncil cannot achieve these things for our area, we need to hold our noses and vote for people who can.

Wickham Road had a lot of it's pavement dug up for the recent traffic management scheme and then replaced by tarmac.

This thread makes me wonder what was done with those paving stones???

Wild Bill said...

Geoffrey Rd needs it. There's actually one paving slab that is pretty much just a trap door, in that you step on it and it swings down tripping you up. If it's been raining there's a puddle underneath it and you get a soaking wet foot.

The paving just between the Tea Factory and the rail bridge at Brockley Station is dangerous - loose and cracked slabs all over the place. Malpas Road is a total state too - both the pedestrian ways and the road.

Tea Factory? sorry, that's the one in Shoreditch...I mean Tea Leaf centre...

Anon 12:46: it doesn't quite work like that. Cllrs of whatever party don't get to choose which roads and footpaths get resurfaced, otherwise there'd be the risk that we'd all choose roads in our own wards and ignore the rest of the borough. Highways officers do regular surveys of the roads and pavements and based on their current state and what kind of road it is (ie is it on a bus route etc) they come up with a prioritised list of roads to be resurfaced, depending on the budget available. This is formally approved by Mayor & Cabinet.

As cllrs we can and do flag up to officers our concerns about particular roads, but we don't have the final say on what roads get repaired. Equally, members of the public can also report problems directly here.

Now you could argue that things might go on behind the scenes and I'm naive to believe this is how it works etc etc, but looking at the resuracing programmes from recent years, it looks to me like Brockley and Ladywell have got a reasonable share out of the total budget.

Increasing the overall budget for highways repairs is of course a political decision that could be made, but smthg else would then have to be cut to pay for it, or council tax increase further.

The recent cold weather did exacerbate a lot of highways problems and I believe officers are currently assessing the extent of the damage and how much extra work is urgently required.

BTW, looking at the list for 2008/9 resurfacing works, Malpas and Geoffrey Rd both appear to be on the list, so maybe that is imminent (not my ward so I'm not certain).

I can't believe that tressillian road was only beautifully resurfaced within the last year and now has horrific pot holes in the same places where the new tarmac was placed. These companies should have a minimum guarantee. they are doing very well from going back to the same places they have already worked on.

I suspect the buses do quite a bit of damage.

tyrwhitt michael said...

Unlikely on Tressillian Road.

The bendy buses have made aright mess of Loampit Vale though. Its had to be repaired two or three times in the last six months

I'd like to nominate Brookbank Road for Brockley Street of Shame...

Whilst it does form a very handy shortcut for driving to Lewisham and avoiding a good stretch of the main road, it hasn't half taken a battering for it. Alternate potholes all the way along make your car do a little dance as you drive down it.

Sue said...

I don't think Tressillian has been resurfaced in the last few years has it? Certainly not the lower section from Harefield down to St Margarets.

St Asaph road having some improvements made at the moment. Also to pavements.
