  • The Council has inspected these drains this afternoon and combined with recent CCTV investigation (where Elm Road meets Cedar Road) this flooding issue has been referred to Thames Water.

    A 24hr response has been assigned and a tanker from Thames Water will investigate flow within their main line. Flooding on Elm Road was widespread yet drains and their connections towards Cedars Road were observed working during lighter rainfall - suggesting a capacity or obstruction issue within the underground line preventing the drains from working efficiently.

    Some minor carriageway defects were observed that reduce flow within the kerbside and these will be referred to Highways for repair.
