Drains not coping _ causing danger!!

Reported in the Flooding or standing water on road category anonymously at 10:36, Mon 28 May 2018

Sent to Warwickshire County Council 4 minutes later

Following yesterday's heavy rain, the road was flooded yet again. The danger to traffic -and cyclists and pedestrians - is significant, and the water entered my house causing severe concern for the first time in many years.

  • Several heavy showers over the period Dec 3rd to 6th again caused deep accumulations of road water. Traffic caused "showers" over the sidewalk which would soak pedestrians or children waiting for school buses. Cyclists and motorcyclists are at great danger when visibility is poor.
