Consistent Failure of water not draining

Reported via mobile in the Flooding in the road category by Tim Harris at 11:04, Fri 3 November 2023

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 5170001.

In this area around the drain we see water failing to drain away and it has been the case since we moved into the road 4 years ago, I assume this goes back even further. It becomes difficult to walk through this section of the pathway as you will and we have been splashed by passing vehicles. I don't think it is unreasonable to expect to be able to walk down a road with fear of getting a soaking from a passing car. This isn't isolated to extreme rainfall.

  • Hi,

    Great to see the tarmac around the drain has been repaired.

    The drainage problem still remains however, the water pools despite the most recent repair.
