Repeated flooding at location

  • Road flooding in entire area of loading bay, this extends into carriageway (see street view capture image uploaded). This now floods even in light rain, and is deep enough to cause hydrolock. This morning, there was a stranded vehicle in the loading bay. The flooding also affects the pavement pedestrians, making the area not passable. Looking at street view, either a drain cover has been covered in error by tarmac, OR the drain gulley next to speed camera is blocked.
