Back to all reports

The drain outside Waitrose is higher than rhe surrounding road surface which results in a huge puddle after any rain - with consequent spraying of pedestrians by passing traffic - not good and causes hige upset to anyone affected... residents & tourists. Your contractors laying the surface did a good job, but the slope of road is critical and must be carefully designed so that surface water, at this busy spot, can drain away!!!!

The comprehensive re-surfacing of the road outside The Podium (Waitrose) arond St Michaels Church last summer was very welcome. However, the drain outside Waitrose is higher than the surrounding road surface which results in a huge puddle after any rain - with consequent spraying of pedestrians by passing traffic - not good and causes huge upset to anyone affected... residents & tourists. Your contractors laying the surface did a good job, but the slope of road is critical and must be carefully designed so that surface water, at this busy spot, can drain away!!!!

  • I don't think anything has changed. The whole road was re-surfaced last year - brilliant job! - but unfortunately there is a dip outside Waitrose - so unless it is viewed after rain , there appeas to be no problem. Oh dear!
