A4 Cedars Road Westbound Drain Defects

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 11:09, Wednesday 11 January 2023

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS4113444.

This concerns the drain in the westbound A4 opposite 49 Cedars Road. 1) The drain is blocked. The photo shows water up to the grille. 2) The drain is out of position with respect to the gutter, This means water does not drain away and accumulates in the gutter. This in turn means that pedestrians risk getting soaked.
