50cm flood in underpass

Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

On Wednesday 14 October 2020 at approximately 1000hrs I was cycling along the underpass beneath the M11 motorway when I saw the underpass had been flooded and has not receded since the last rains. This is a busy thoroughfare as it allows pedestrians to get to places quicker than following the busier main road.

  • Just what wanted to add that this has been a problem for a few months now - I did see some guys with a van (think from highways England, not sure) poking around there in the summer but clearly whatever they did did not work

  • Highways England informed me that Connect Plus Services who work on behalf of the organisation attended the location on 19 and 22 October 2020 to clear the water; they informed me that a longer term solution is being sought with respect to the pumps failing when there is substantial rainfall.
