Road flooding

The road under the railway arch has been flooded many times recently. The flood water has gone over the pavement. The two questions are, why does it flood so often - do the drains need clearing or extra drainage installed - and what can be done to help pedestrians. Many drivers are properly cautious and courteous but some need reminding about taking care of pedestrians. An elderly relative has just reported exhaustion after taking a longer route home so that they can avoid this flood. They can't walk quickly enough (and the water is often too deep on the pavement) to get through safely in between cars. If this problem continues, could not the pavement be raised to help pedestrians get through at the very least?
