Deep flooded stretch of National Cycle Network Route 20

Reported via desktop in the Flooding/drainage (NH) category by Dennis Regan at 09:14, Friday 29 March 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5781070.

Deep flooding and overspill debris from field/land and blocked ditch to the West. Water is circa 250mm deep and has remained all through winter, not clearing to any degree during dry days and stagnating. Dangerous and a hazard to health trying to cycle through unseen stones, slime and stagnant water. There is no viable alternative route other than climbing a bank and walking the main A27 dual carriageway (with no footpath). Photos can be provided. Please advise if NH are not responsible for maintainng National Cycle Network routes running alongside main A roads

  • Thank you for making this report about the flooding to the cycle path adjacent to the A23.

    Following a safety review by our inspector, we've made the decision to temporarily close the flooded stretch of the path, with cones and barriers in place to alert cyclists and pedestrians while we work to find a solution.

    Thank you again for bringing this to our attention.

    Kind regards

    National Highways
