There is s long metal handrail laying on the footpath leading down into the subway at the top of Brook Lane DA5 1DW

Reported via mobile in the Debris in the carriageway category anonymously at 14:38, Monday 25 July 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3705190.

It appears that the heavy metal handrail has been jumped on and snapped off of its metal wall fixings. The handrail as you turn half way down the subway has also been snapped from its fixings although has not yet fallen to the ground. It is a dangerous trip hazard.

  • I do understand why this has been forwarded to TfL. The subway in question is a public footpath under the A2 NOT a TfL station subway.

  • My last update should have read "I do NOT understand why this has been forwarded to TfL". Sorry for the omission.
