Poor performance of drains cause flooding to the entire carriageway.

Drains are kept clear by local residents but drainage is poor, and it results in standing water across the entire carriageway. This is symptomatic of a huge underlying issue of flooding, drainage and water management in the local area,

  • It is no longer raining so therefore there is no flooding. This does not mean the problem has been fixed, it has merely gone away. The issue is chronic - ie it has been happening for a number of years - so i suggest that BEFORE the next heavy rainy season, the council investigates the root cause of this flooding, and solves the root cause.

  • Thank you for your report. We have assessed it and found that it does not currently meet the criteria for intervention, so will not be fixing at this time.
