Flooding/Drain Blocked near junction of London Road and Waldenshaw Road, Forest Hill, SE23

Reported via desktop in the Flooding category anonymously at 11:42, Thursday 29 July 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2899235.

Previously reported in June 2021 but no action has been taken by Lewisham Council and this matter is now extremely serious. Drain in pavement between 70 & 72 London Road is blocked. During heavy rain water from the pavement enters 70 London Road filling up lightwells and causing problems to the building. We have installed a barrier at the back edge of the pavement to the front gate to 70 London Road, however, the pavement camber and drain desperately need attending and the problem addressed. We look forward to hearing from you.
