We aim to maintain all footpaths and roads in a safe and attractive condition.
Once you report a road, footpath or street furniture defect, we will visit the site to make an inspection. If the defect meets
our criteria for repair, we will request the repairs to be carried out by our contractor. This can take 28 days after the initial inspection.
If the defect does not meet our criteria for repair at this time, it will be monitored as part of our inspection schedule for any deterioration.
Red Routes (roads with painted double red lines) should be reported to
Transport for London.
Bus shelters in Merton are managed and maintained by
