FixMyStreet ref: 5548818.
Flooding again on this main dual carriageway. Vehicles are now driving up onto the pavement to access the kingsway/lower road. Repeated flooding here, no action being takento resolved issues here on this 70mph road.
If the flooding is caused by a water leak we will report it to the relevant water company, who are responsible for water leaks.
There are occasions when flash flooding overloads the drain/gully, even when a drain/gully is clean and well maintained it can 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, this generally clears away over a matter of hours.
The Highway Officer is only able to inspect the drain when the water has cleared away, this will be done within 10 days and if required, an order will be raised to clear the drain.
