Overflow of drains

Reported in the Road and Pavement Issues category anonymously at 22:07, Tuesday 15 January 2019 using FixMyStreet Pro

There is a dangerous overflow of water at these traffic lights on Pickhurst Lane, causing a constant puddle of water on the road.

These puddles froze a few weeks ago causing a serious hazard to drivers, cars were skidding over the ice whilst croosing the traffic lights from Mead Way in The Avenue and visa versa.

This should be looked at and resolved asap, with colder weather forcasted next week this part of the road is set to become an ice rink.

  • This spot and the surrounding roads was extremely dangerous today with the temp at -3.5C Please can someone at LBB use some common sense in risk mitigation and dress the nearby roads with some salt until this is fixed. This is now URGENT.. with the predicted overnight temperatures, it won't be long before someone is injured
