Flooding due to blocked drain., 13th September

Post by fixmystreet » Thu Sep 13, 2018 8:42 pm

There is a blocked grid immediately under the 'Welcome to Wirral ' sign. It is full of silt and the hot summer has turned it to concrete and the is no flow whatsoever. During the recent heavy rain the flood quickly extended right across the road to maybe 30mm depth. Traffic use this road at considerable speed and the risk of aqua planing is considerable. Due to the proximity of a blind bend the hazard to traffic is considerable. This was reported in February and apart from the council erecting a warning sign (in one direction only) (now missing) nothing whatsoever has happened. Being right on the boundary between Neston and Wirral it seems that each council is waiting for the other to react.

Nearest road to the pin placed on the map (automatically generated by Bing Maps): The Croft Upper Raby Road, Neston
