Every time it rains heavily, the road floods all the way across. Many drivers don't slowdown causing tidal wash which comes down our driveway. The storm drains are inadequate.

Reported via desktop in the Flooding in the road category anonymously at 16:08, Tue 31 October 2023

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 5158704.

With the increase in much heavier rainfall than previously, and the fact that one of the storm drains was removed comparatively recently, it now floods vey quickly in the dip outside nos. 26,28 and 30. There's no signage to warn drivers of the possibility that the road is flooded.

This problem has increased with the ferocity of recent rain fall and the removal of the storm drain outside no 25.
