There is deep flooding throughout the whole subway under the A1 at the top of The Fairway leading to Courtland Avenue. There are lots of children and parents using this route to get to Courtland School. It was impassable today, multiple children were late to school because they had to walk down to Apex Corner to use the subway there.

  • This subway is used by many families from the 4 schools around and the local residents. This needs to be dealt with as the weather gets wetter.
