Flooding in Rosary Lane, Little Wolford (again!)

Reported in the Flooding or standing water on road category anonymously at 14:44, Wed 2 December 2015

Sent to Warwickshire County Council less than a minute later

In Spring 2014, Jeff Morris (County Highways) arranged for the repair of a collapsed surface water drainage culvert beneath Rosary Lane; this was causing the the gulley by the fountain in Little Wolford Road to overflow and water (from the fountain as well as surface water) to flood continuously across the road and down Rosary Lane to the gulley opposite The Rosary. This flooding has now re-occured, presumably because a further section of the culvert has collapsed. The flow of water down Rosary Lane is significant and continuous, and will pose a hazard, especially to elderly residents, in the event of freezing temperatures.

  • Uppermost section of culvert jetted, but flow of water continues, now down both sides of the lane. Indeed, water can be seen bubbling up through the tarmac at the lane edge, so the culvert has presumably collapsed downstream of the section that has been jetted. Reported to Highways.
