Back to all reports

There are a great number of totally blocked drains on Westhorne Avenue resulting in flooding and dousing pedestrians waiting at the lights!

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 16:02, Thursday 12 August 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2931696.

The drains on the section by the traffic lights and by the opposite corner of Alnwick Road on this red route have been blocked for almost a year. I have reported them a number of times and was assured the problem would be fixed after the next rain. There have been at least SEVEN rainfalls since. The pavement is narrow and the crossing is impassible for pedestrians when it rains heavily.
