  • The flooding has increased and today was covered in a thin layer of ice making it even more dangerous. As a pedestrian who regularly uses this route something needs to be done about the flooding as it makes it impassible without ruining your shoes/clothing and soaking your feet and trousers. The water has regularly been quite high and the bridge flooded so often and there is no easy diversion for pedestrians.

  • Thank you for your prompt reply. The drain would be improved by increasing the length by at least 2 Metres and the width by the maximum possible and duplicating it on the opposite side of the road. The drainage apertures should be as large as safety permits, this would mean fabricating custom drain covers and housings

  • Further to my suggestion of a drainage design I would add that the long standing problem is caused by the trash from hedge trimming blocking the existing small drain opening, the larger drain area should, hopefully solve the problem

  • The drains are still blocked and the road is still flooded. The bridge is at the bottom of a hill and is covered in soil and detritus that has washed down onto it. A longer term and more permanent resolution of the problem is required. The bridge should be scrubbed clear and the drains rebuilt to cope with the flooding
