Kerbs need painting white

Reported via desktop in the Pavement Defect (uneven surface / cracked paving slab) category anonymously at 10:40, Tue 21 December 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3192310.

Enquiry About Other: Dangerous road island kerbs

Comments: The unlit central island on the A21 at the crossing point leading from lynne Close has kerbs that are very difficult to see in the dark causing vehicles to swerve at the last minute as they become visible. The Street lighting is inadequate to illuminate the island and the island has only reflective keep left indicating signs. It will cause vehicles to strike it as it is dangerous. Another single island south of/near to Tubbenden laneroundabout on the A21 has the same issues and is also dangerous for the same reasons. At the very least the kerbs need painting white to highlight them . Ideally the island need proper illumination.

Location: A21, Green Street Green, Orpington BR6 6BT, UK
