  • Hi Afsar, I hope this email finds you well. Further to my initial email on this matter dated 5th May, my fellow residents (some of whom are copied in to this email) and I are concerned that there has been no action. We should be grateful if you are able to instruct us in how to escalate this matter in order to overcome the inaction to achieve the required repair.

    I will place a copy of this email on your report management system noted below, for reference. Many thanks, Richard

  • Hi, Despite TFL accepting responsibility on 22nd April for this defect, no action has been taken. Comparatively, Lambeth Council have rectified their section of the surface (granted, without further inspection of underlying cause of depression). Given the fact that there was a significant depression in adjacent areas, we question whether there is an escape of water. Please could you confirm when you will be able to investigate the cause and rectify the depression in the pavement adjacent to the red route. Thank you. Rich

  • This was not resolved and should not have been closed.

    As you can see from the attached photos, the drain is sinking further into the ground and has not been resolved.

    This presents a trip hazard and in the longer term will drop further.

    Nearby areas have also depressed (but Lambeth Council resurfaced areas under their responsibility) and the sub-structure needs investigation.

    Please reopen this issue and repair.
