Pavement rainwater channels blocked
Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 16:14, Wed 28 July 2021
Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2897642.
There are channels that run across the pavement at various intervals to take away rainwater from the drainpipes on The Industrial Dwellings buildings. The open design of these channels mean they get blocked with debris from the street. The water has been unable to flow away properly and has got into the buildings basements as a result of Sunday’s flash flooding
