  • This problem is getting to be a serious concern. There is no street lighting at night and its on a blind bend and the water regularly covers the road. You could at least put flood signs out. With the increased traffic down Gilson Road, this is a danger that could be avoided.

  • The flooding there is worse than ever this morning and it is the route that the school buses use going to The Coleshill School. The flooding is over fully over one side of the road on a blind bend and partly across the other side of the road.

  • Is there any chance the council could update us? There are numerous potholes on this road as well down to the extra HS2 traffic. Surely months is long enough for someone to do something about it? The flooding is very dangerous and there is going to be a accident with all the extra traffic speeding down the road
