Water running past number 16 possibly from storm drain further up the road. Depositing mud and silt and eroding the edge of the highway. Hazard (both for road users as road is narrow, and us as homeowners) particularly now temperatures are dropping as it will freeze. Originally reported in 2018 and was informed resolved. Water running again now for some weeks.

  • This problem has never been resolved. The water runs onto the highway at the front of number 18 Warwick road, and then runs across the front of number 16, and has got worse since 2018. Eg April 2021 with very low rainfall, water keeps flowing. There is a storm drain on Warwick Road, which could be connected to this water outflow. Water is a skid risk, particularly to cyclists and turns to ice in winter

  • Water running down the road is continuous and is causing a skid hazard to road users, on a bend in road, and road narrows. Also no footpath where water/ skid risk arises, and is a regular route for pedestrians including children. Water is also eroding a wall and carriageway, danger of collapse. Someone needs to take responsibility for this and fix it. It is now a 24/7 hazard.
