Water is accumulating in the road by the speed restriction. Cars are soaking pedestrians. Next point of accumulation is outside 178 London Road, where it is damaging the privately owned driveway. Water then travels over the road to the other side (Dennis Close?)

  • No. It still occurs occasionally. We think that the pump at the corner of Thorn Way discharges after rain. The water cannot get down the gulley so it comes out and floods down the road. I think the drains need to be flushed out to remove the debris from the water repair done just before Christmas.
