Hi There, The gully all along Kings Cross Bridge is blocked and so every time it rains the water collects in the road. The photos do not show how bad it gets but it does give you an idea. I work at Scala and every time we are open if it is wet or raining we have to use squeegees to move the water along to the drain at the beginning and throughout the night. Thank you for taking the time to read.
Thank you for taking the time to report this to us. We appreciate this. This has now been investigated and we’ve reported this to our contractors.

Thank you for sending out Drainline to investigate this matter. The guys were really helpful and knowledgeable. We were told that this was their 4th time coming out to look at this problem and each time they feedback that the curb has been built over the drain so they are unable to access it to unblock it. It's the first time we have managed to talk to them. They have said they will feedback again that the curb needs to be rectified so they can access the drain. They have left Sprayed marks to show where the drain is (see photos). The water is still collecting when it rains. Please can you advice if this will be corrected anytime soon or if I have to log another repot in another section? Thank you again for reading.
