Drains cobstantly over flowing

Reported via iOS in the Blocked rainwater gulleys category anonymously at 14:54, Mon 13 December 2021

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 3177298.

There are drains under the railway bridge by Sidcup station. When there has been heavy rain they over flow and the rain can be up to a foot or more deep in the road. The water also seeps in to the walkway under the bridge on the side of the station which makes it hard to walk through that tunnel because the water can be quite deep. I have reported this issue before to both Bexley Borough and to Thames Water but nothing gets done to rectify it.

The water damages cars trying to travel through the tunnel. The water in the pathway causes a health & safety risk to people trying to walk through. Especially the elderly, or disabled.
