Heavy rain water is coming from the A2 and flooding the alleyway behind my house

Reported via desktop in the Flooding category anonymously at 09:57, Sat 30 January 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2511383.

Heavy rain water is coming from the A2 and flooding the alleyway behind my garage, and so is flooding my garage, which is coming through to my garden and flooding my garden. I need the drains on the A2 near this area to be cleared, as they are blocked. I don't know how often they are cleared, but they are not clearing the water away, as its coming over the side and flooding my property.

  • It seems the galleys on A2 are blocked so water not going to drains, but is coming down the side to the alleyway

  • All the drains along this part of the A2 (we counted 8) are blocked with mud and no water is draining away. This means the water is going down side of A2 and coming into my garage and flooding my garden and others. It also caused a huge puddle along the A2, which can cause accidents. These drains all need clearing, both for safety of drivers during periods of heavy rain, and damage to residents propertys by way of flooding
