This area is highly susceptible to flooding when it rains, meaning pedestrians often get drenched by passing cars on both sides of Caerphilly Road between Lon-y-Groes and Rhydelig Avenue

  • Still open, via questionnaire, 15:14, Tue 31 January 2012

  • Problem has not been fixed, I did see council employees 'looking at the water' on 24th or 25th January. Also, the drain outside 30 Caerphilly Road is completely blocked.

  • No rain for quite a few weeks, therefore unsure if flooding problem has been resolved.

  • The problem at thr junction of Caerphilly Road and Lon-y-Groes appears to have been cleared. However, on the opposite side of Caerphilly Road during periods of heavy rain the drains on the kerbside are unable to cope and pedestrians are getting drenched by vehicles.
