In previous storms serious flooding created a large lake with a depth of 25cm of water gathered blocking the station exit. Currently a pile of leaves and soil seems to be blocking the drainage to the carpark at the ticket machine which is also the secondary exit for the carpark for the station. This drainage appears to be exactly at the station exit at the location indicated.
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.
