Concrete block protruding upwards causing a tripping hazard.

Reported via desktop in the Pavement Defect (uneven surface / cracked paving slab) category anonymously at 18:02, Tuesday 31 January 2023

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS4190584.

As can be seen, the concrete block protrudes upwards and causes people to trip and fall. I am also concerned that as vehicles drive through it, it could inflict damage to the vehicles.

The defect is on the driveway entering the rear yard/garden of Raines Court on Northwold Road, I think the nearest door number is 21.

I don’t know how long it has been there for, but I tripped and fell over it at about 8:30 am this morning. A bin collector lorry was waiting in the driveway to for the gates to be opened to enter the rear yard/garden at Raines Court and as it obstructed the pedestrian pathway I walked route back of the lorry and then suddenly tripped and fell. I then noticed the block was excessively high, posing a hazard to everyone.
