Consistent Failure of water not draining
Reported via mobile in the Flooding in the road category by Tim Harris at 11:04, Friday 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.

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.
