Back to all reports

Every time there is a lot of rain the road here floods. Blocks dropped kerbs and would present a hazard in icy weather.

This has been a problem at the south end of this stretch of London Road - next to the council garages - since last year and in spite of reports to Street Dr and letters to the useless Cllr Sadygov (sorry but they were never answered) nothing has been done about it. A drain cleaning machine came round last week but with the rains afterwards it flooded again.

  • Road still flooded after heavy rain on Monday 30th September.Not looked since but imagine this was still the case on a wet 1st October. Is ANYTHING going to be done about this?

  • Still flooding every time it rains. Getting wider every year and I have lived in this street for nearly 8 years. Hard to walk out of the street without wading or walking on the mud!
