Multiple potholes and deteriorating patched up road surfaces

I live on Avery Hill Road and have reached out to the council in the past for a number of pot hole related issues at this location on Avery Hill Road.

Although, the council has patched up the pot holes in multiple parts in the past, the situation of these pot holes and road surface has now become worse with multiple patches that can be found within a stretch of 20 metres, most of the patched up potholes now cracking up again and the road surface getting even worse on a daily basis due to constant heavy usage of the road.

As a result of these potholes outside of my house, I am unable to live peacefully in quietness at my property due to the constant vibrations in the walls and property that I can feel every time a local bus, tempo, truck or lorry passes by.

Alex Djan, the Traffic Group Manager for Greenwich in the past mentioned to me in an email response that Avery Hill road is a busy distributor road and the main link between Avery Hill and New Eltham districts.

I would like to highlight to the Council that if this is truly the case, why has there been no action taken to ensure that this road surface is kept in a good condition? Although I have only highlighted a small section of Avery Hill road for repairs, but if the Council can get someone to inspect the road surface of Avery Hill Road from New Eltham station junction to half way street, the council will realise the poor state of this road.

  • Still not fixed and this has now worsened. The markings itself done by the Council to repair the patch has now disappeared.

    Disappointed by the slowness of response and action by Greenwich Council. I wish the Council tax was tagged to the performance of the Council against complaints made by the residents and the time taken by the Council for resolution of such complaints.

  • Over two months since being reported, this problem has still not been fixed. The condition of road surface has worsened even more with no signs of repairs being scheduled or planned by the Council. This is just shoddy management from Greenwich Council.

  • Greenwich council seems to be closing this without fixing it. Quite surprising to see this approach from Greenwich Council. Not sure whether Greenwich council is even interested in repairing this patch of road at all.
