Pavement Submerged under water due to Horrendous pavement design by TFL

Reported via desktop in the Standing water category anonymously at 10:15, Friday 15 January 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2479580.

Pavement outside houses 39 and 37 have some kind of verge that may have once been meant for grass or bushes, it is now a flood plain that stretches accross the entire pavement, making it impossible for me to walk past without drenching my feet (I do not wear Wellies to work) in order for me to get to the bus stop.

  • The photo added was in September of 2020 when we had some rain, but yesterday 14/01/2021 the water was right up to the edge of the houses front gardens, to walk past you then have to trespass into people's gardens in order to walk past this flooded section.
