The only dropped kerb giving wheelchair access from Westbury Rd to the pedestrian crossing onto Blackboy Hill is completely flooded to about a 5"depth and impassable for wheelchair users. This dropped kerb is always flooded and desperatly needs sorting but it is the worst I've ever seen it. The flood actually stretches all the way up the Stoke Rd extension - photo shows the depth of water against a car tyre 200 yards further up. Please, as a wheelchair user it is my only route across that road, please fix this worst ever but constant problem by sorting out a drainage point there.

  • You;'re saying it's fixed because the water is gone. That's because it's not raining and hasn't done for a week. As soon as it rains again the problem will reoccur as it has repeatedly. You haven't 'fixed the problem' of no drainage at the dropped kerb at all.
