Hi, there's a drain that has come lose on the A21, (Red route) Hastings Road, between Hollydale Road and Lakeside Drive. It makes a very loud banging noise when any large vehicle drives over it and often wakes us, and our neighbours, up during the night. It has been looked at numerous times, but nothing seems to be working. I have looked on Bromley Councils website and because it is a red route it says to contact you. Is this something that is dealt with by you, or by our local council? I look forward to hearing from you.

  • This manhole cover and surround was replaced on the 5th November after 9 months of problems. As of last night (25th November) it has started rattling and banging again. Please can this be looked at urgently as the fix has only lasted for 20 days!
