Flooding on underpass beneath M49

Reported via desktop in the Flooding/drainage category anonymously at 12:15, Monday 13 September 2021

Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

The cycle path and underpass along Lawrence Weston Road was flooded and made impassable. This issue was raised with Bristol City Council on 26th December 2020 and has been recently reallocated to the flood risk team. However, I believe this is a Highways issue.

    We've arranged for the clearance and clean the Lawrence Road Subway and we'll check to see if the pumps are working when it rains next?
