Volume of water in heavy showers easily and quickly overcomes the existing drain infrastructure at the junction of Cavendish Close with Elizabeth Avenue, as water runs down the road to this point from all sides. Pedestrians cannot pass safely when this happens, drivers that do not slowdown also risk sending bow waves into properties on the road. We moved in 6 months ago and have seen this happen several times since we moved in. Water tends to slowly retreat once rain has stopped, but if the drain gets blocked for any reason during one of these showers I hate to think how high the level could get.
