Blocked drain covers

Reported via mobile in the Flooding category anonymously at 11:00, Thu 17 November 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3971105.

We believe the falling autumn leaves from the big trees along the dual carriageway are blocking drainage system. We haven't seen anyone lately from the highway maintenance/road sweep team on Sidcup Road dealing with this debris. When it rains, the place floods not only on the carriageway but also on our front porch because of the run off water sprayed or pushed by speeding vehicles. It is a 40mph zone and when it floods, this a poses serious road hazard for both motorists and pedestrians alike.
