For the past couple of months, track ballast rocks have been falling on Wesminster Bridge Road, under Waterloo's railway bridge. I think it must be due to the recent works going on at the station extending platforms. It is much worse when it rains. I wonder if anyone's been hit by these large stones. They would certainly damage cars and cause a concussions to pedestrians/cyclists without helmets. There must be a gap that allows these stones through.
Any idea who I could contact to have this reported and looked at?

I'm sure I heard, on the radio, that WBR was closed off today because of debris from the bridge.

It would be Network Rail, they've got a 24hr helpline: 03457 11 41 41.
They make a great song and dance about safety so would probably act as soon as they knew about it.

I did not dare call the emergency number and the normal number did not take me anywhere so eventually I had a webchat last night on their website to notify it. Noticed this morning that most of the rocks have been swept away.

Well good on you for telling them, and sorry if the number was no good.
