Lack of drainage at main traffic light crossing

Reported via mobile in the Flooding/drainage (NH) category anonymously at 01:11, Wednesday 15 May 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5974784.

We live at LU7 9LP and also I work at Tamaru Kitchens. I have 2 very young children (age3 and 7) and every time it rains the footpath where you cross at the traffic light to the harvester, outside the Tamaru kitchen showroom there is flooding here. I have attached screenshots of videos I have taken when this happens and have also reported this previously on 26th sept 2023 and still nothing has been done to resolve this. Since then we had flooding in January 2024 whereby water flooded our showroom and lorry’s were splashing/ soaking the front of the building. The glass and bricks of the whole of the front of the building of is filthy due to these incidents and the lack of drainage here. Our Neighbours at have had drainage issues and these seem to have been dealt with quickly, where the A5 road has had to be dug up overnight, but we have still not heard and no one contacted us after the last report. Please contact me if you require more information.
