The 2 drains by the bridge along the footpath are blocked and have been for years! Currently with all this heavy rain it means the footpath under the bridge is flooded, about 6” deep and people are struggling to get through it. The map won’t mark the actual place!
This has been passed to the Local Area Technician to investigate.
We know that an important part of any road network is the drainage system which is designed to carry water away from the road surface. Even when a gully is clean and well maintained it will only cope with a certain volume of water at one time, a sudden and heavy downpour can still cause flooding especially if the road is in a low lying area.
