Road not draining - splashes pedestrians when raining

Reported via desktop in the Standing water category anonymously at 11:50, Tue 28 February 2023

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS4270296.

When it rains, this section of road from Egerton Drive to the zebra crossing on the north side of the road collects standing water, making it almost impossible to get past without getting splashed by passing traffic. It has been like this for at least 4 years. My daughter recently got completely soaked despite knowing that this section is tricky to navigate and even when hiding behind a wheelie bin, when a very fast car drove past - she still got drenched. So for those not aware of the problem, they are running the risk of getting soaked too. Many thanks for taking the time to look at this.
