Flooding
« on: October 17, 2013, 12:10:08 PM »
I was not able to use the pavement yesterday at the Greenway Drive/Diglis Lane junction due to flooding after the heavy rain. This has been a problem for some time now so I have emailed the Worcestershire Hub with the details.

It's a massive problem right outside our house. It's a nightmare. I called the city council
But they said the road was adequate to the amount of drainage in place.

You should halve your council tax and tell them it's adequate for the amount of service you get!  ;)

Next time it floods I will take a photo and send it to the Worcestershire Hub.

Lol!  Good idea. I will do the same.

I also reported it direct to Highways on 17th October.  I did get a reply a week later after two more people made reports to the Hub on 22nd October.  It said that an officer 'spoke to one of those residents the next day and the water had gone down.  No further action is recorded as being necessary at this time.  Please let me know if you need anything new recording?'

The water does eventually disappear, but this obviously depends on how much rain we have and for how long.
In the meantime, which has been two days or more in the past the path is sometimes impassable. If you are very unlucky you get a free shower courtesy of an inconsiderate driver.
The fact remains that the drainage is currently inadequate and needs improvement. It could just be a build up of soil and leaves in the existing drains?
