TfL ref: FMS3777143.
Every time it rains heavily this whole section of road floods to a depth of about 12 inches. The problem occurs on both sides, but the northbound is particularly affected, which is extremely dangerous to all road traffic and causes very long delays. Please check that all the drainage in the vicinity (northbound and southbound) of this area is clear and free of any blockage to minimise the accumulatoin of standing water.
The council have told me this goes back to the building of the Marble Drive estate since the sewers cannot cope with the combined surface water and it actually wells up the gullies into the A41 as a result, this far exceeding what streams downhill from the flyover. Though lessened when the pedestrian underpass had fewer defences, then that would get the worst of it. Possibly a similar recurring problem somewhere on Pinkham Way.
