This leak has been going on for months now, it may even be getting on for a year or more? Cant remember when I first saw it. The area is always wet, the pavements are a mess, and the water looks to be flowing and pooling right down to Upwell Lane. I don't care who's responsibility this is, it needs sorting out! Sandbags and a couple of 'Flood' or 'Ice' signs is not dealing with the problem. This is a disgrace! In the unlikely event we get any seriously cold weather, this area could be lethal to both road users and pedestrians. I dare say the residents along here are fed up of it, and I also wonder how many thousands, tens of thousands or maybe millions of gallons of water have been wasted so far??? Can someone just take ownership of this and get it sorted please.
I drove past here yesterday (08-02-2020) and noted that there is still water pouring out of the ground, the council / Amey have though it seems done some work to divert the water into the drains, presumably to stop it from pooling further down the road? I dare say I don't know the full story, but this doesn't look like the best way to deal with the issue..? and I hope they are planning on plugging this leak at some point in the future..? Though who knows, maybe its a natural spring and not a water main after all..?
