  • This has still not been cleared. There is a larger than usual drain iron in the carriageway / kerb and no water seeps away it only disappears after wheels splash and evaporation. The drain is blocked. The smallest of showers now produces a puddle which incoming vehicles cannot avoid and likely to drench pedestrians on the narrow pavement.
