Flooding again and again

Reported via desktop in the Flooding category anonymously at 13:38, Tue 19 December 2023

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS5337519.

Road flooded 2 out of three lanes and effected.

Been reporting this for years and still TFL fail to clear the 35 drains and the road on a regular basis. There is a mountain of mud under the water which the drain van will not clear so it clogs the next time and again and again.

This is year 4 that I have been reporting it…..

  • Every time we have heavy rain a deep puddle for an across three lanes and traffic comes almost to a halt as cars try to negotiate out around the enormous puddle. It’s a bad accident waiting to happen on a 50 MPH road
