Blocked gully

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 12:22, Tuesday 14 September 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3000228.

Reporting: Gully Blocked Street/Site: Broad Lane Nearest Property Location: 169 Broad Ln, London N15 4QT, UK Additional Information: I understand that this is a TfL road and therefore not Haringey's responsibility but the drainage along Broad Lane is atrocious! The worst aspect of this is that every time it rains heavily the Zebra crossing at this location gets flooded on both sides of the road - this is a safety issue because it forces people to cross away from the crossing potentially causing confusion as to whether drivers should give way or not. Also, in winter time the water could freeze... do I need to go on?

This has been an issue for years; please can you push TfL to get it sorted? In my experience TfL roads often have terrible drainage.
