Dangerous deep ponding due to blocked drain on Sainsbury Road (near junction Bristow Road).

Pedestrians and children at risk of get soaked, and drivers at risk of hitting submerged debris.

This storm drain is at the bottom of hill, in a natural basin.

Drain to be inspected and cleared urgently. Water remains ponding for days after rainfall due to large size of ponding that overlaps the footway.

  • Almost a month later... drain still blocked, and ponding as deep as top of curb / footway.

  • Dangerous deep ponding, that has totally separated Sainsbury Road, covering the footway and carriageway. Community cannot always safely walk to GipsyHill railway station or access to the Berridge Road estate. Some vehicles can cause very wide and high water waves that can soak a child or babies in prams if trying to pass.
