The subway under the A3 at South Lane has not been swept for at least 2 weeks. The accumulated rubbish-plastic bags,cans, glass etc blocked the drain at the lowest point of the subway during recent torrential rain causing a flood which was still there on Wednesday. The water has now drained away leaving the rubbish. The slimey plastc bags are a trip hazard and I slipped one today. Silt also accumulated during the flood and is slippery ,causing another trip hazard. This subway is a vital link for local residents enabling them to access bus stops and schools and should be swept regularly. It is well known that it is prone to flood after heavy rain. There would be more rubbish down there if it had not been 1/2 term this week. In addition,an old car/lorry tyre which had been dumped at the top of the subway on the New Malden side is now in thw subway and could cause a nasty accident if it is moved on to the cycle path.
