  • Please prioritise, as it causes the road to flood in heavy rain on the roundabout, so is a hazard in bad weather

  • 30/07/2019. This problem is still not fixed and after heavy rain today the flooding was quite deep. This needs prioritising!

  • Problem with blocked strom drains increasing due to heavy rain, also other blocked drains at bottom of woodford road and by Five ways garage following road works on 29th July. Concerned for safety please resolve ASAP

  • This is still an issue, the road is flooded for several days after heavy rain, making the pedestrian crossing unusable. With roadworks commencing here for the gas works, this would be a good opportunity to fix this.
