Footpath not usable when it rains

There is a flaw in the footpath outside of 51 Queen's Mead Road that stops rainwater draining off the footpath and you get the huge puddle shown in the photo each time it rains.

  • The 'fix' seems to have involved laying new asphalt on an area about 18 inches by 18 inches and it hasn't worked as once again the footpath was flooded and impassable today. Pedestrians had to step out into the traffic to get past, which is very dangerous during the two school runs and the morning and evening peaks Someone needs to look at the footpath next time it is raining to determine what exactly is required to build up the area that floods.

  • The footpath is still impassable whenever it rains, such as last Friday and today (see photo update).

    Also there are similar puddles that force pedestrians to use the road outside of 29 Queen's Mead Road (second photo above).

    Finally, you need to visit these sites when it is raining to see the effects and to work out what flaws in the footpath need fixing, and not just visit a few days later and undertake ineffective or no fixes!

  • We raised the works order following site inspection and works expected to be completed within next 5 weeks. This will alleviate the flooding problem.
