Can any one remind me if new kent road comes under southwark council? I phoned southwark this morning to report the racket caused by vehicles going over metal covers that the road surface had eroded the edges or vice /versa...spoke to really nice young lad who efficiently took all the details to forward on to the highway dept. but I have a niggly feeling its TFL?
The noise of vehicles going over them sounds like a metal tray clanging all day and night there are 3/4 that are affected. When traffic returns to normal it will be unbearable.
I did report them years ago but can't remember who to...living up to me moniker!
Thanks Beetroot, I must be more of an idiot....when ever I tried to enlarge it it just pixilated into little squares....I am a dork! lol I will take your word for it that it belongs to TFL...oh for the good old days when a road came under the local council or relevant service depts.,!
No you're not the idiot. It was because of the poor quality of the map (with no street names too) that I called the maker an idiot. Comparing it to a proper map it looks like New Kent Road is marked as tfl.
Beetroot, assuming the operative I spoke to this morning is unable to pass it on, I went onto TFL website to find a phone number to report the problem, and either my few remaining braincells are depleting at a faster rate than I thought, I could not see one, if you get a odd moment could I possibly bother you to look and see where I could report it to?
Well it's a bit of faff but go the map here.
follow the instructions. You basically zoom in and click where it is then click on the balloon that appears and then click 'next' under the bottom left corner on the map. You'll then have a few pages to fill in where you'll be clicking 'none of the above' and 'other' etc.
I've just been looking and I've found a phone number.
0843 222 1234
Under which it says
'You pay no more than 5p per minute if calling from a BT landline. There may be a connection charge. Charges from mobiles or other landline providers may vary.'
It is TfL yes, I've reported the very same twice before over the years, and in fact they have (after a few months) rebuilt the structure that holds the offending cover but as they've positioned it under the track of every bus that trundles down, it gets a lot of wear and it seems to start rocking after six months or so. I should set a calendar reminder for this annually! Thank you for going to the trouble of reporting it again.
