Great Dover Street
has recently undergone renewal of pavements, roadway, and lighting,unfortunatly the standard of work done is very poor.
when the recent rain came it showed up how bad the tarmac was laid, most drainholes are higher than the tarmac so water can,t drain away at the junction of Becket Street
the drain is completly blocked also pools of water in the middle of the road where the tarmac is uneven.
as for the street lighting,its a joke all they've done is to replace the existing lights with identicle ones
which shine mainly on to the roadway once the leaves on the trees come the pavement won,t be lit at all also about 6 of the lampost have never worked.i contacted southwark council (who said it was transport for londons responsibilty)i sent a e-mail to tfl but never got a reply,considering the amount of money spent someone should be checking the finshed rroadway, pavments, and lighting for faults ---dennis john
