The road surface camber is incorrect

Reported via mobile in the Flooding in the road category anonymously at 21:31, Wed 1 November 2023

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 5164146.

The road surface camber is incorrect and there is also a raised area, so that the excess water is unable to drain off into the near by drain. This will become lethal if and when the temperature drops and it freezes. Danger to vulnerable road users and vehicles.

  • This problem needs to be fixed, I am aware that Thames Water have been out due to a suspected leak. The water in my photo is rain water that has collected and not drained away due to the fact that the camber of the road is incorrect and that there is an incline so that the water doesn't drain away into the drain. This is now lethal due to the freezing conditions, A slip hazard for pedestrians and a slip collison for vehicles. Potential for a fatal accident
