I live in the corner of Elmstead Lane and Walden Avenue. Since the elevated section was put in we always get flooded when there is a torrential downpour. There are 2 drains, one either side of the junction and they can’t cope with the amount of rain water. Today the rainwater was coming in waves into my driveway, rising up to the air bricks.

As you can see from the picture, even a small shower is causing a large amount of water to build up.

Yes, aco and another gulley was installed. However, the actual drain pipes cannot take the amount of water when there is a storm. All due to raised section on junction being put there without consideration of flooding. Next time there is a storm, I will post pictures to show my house being flooded!
