For many years this road has flooded and I previously reported it. In February 2011 when the replacement yellow gas pipes were installed the contractor smashed through the drains to install the new service. This allowed me to photograph the inside of the drains and show they are totally silted up. I reported this and the contractor was, apparently, forced to make good their damage and divert the yellow gas pipe. However, the drain has remained blocked. We regularly have a dangerous situation whereby the road and pavement floods, resulting in pedestrian slipping off the submerged footpath. Furthermore, all these years of flooding risk the fine particles being washed from the soil and a sink hole occurring where both gas and electrical services are situated. Please ensure the drains are cleaned to prevent further flooding.
