Wonders will never cease! Workmen have arrived to install a fix to the drains in the form of additional gulleys, approximately located outside 48 Broadway. Shame it was too wet early in the day for the workers to start, some might see this as ironic maybe… Temporary traffic lights are in place.
Are the blocked drains in Broadway about to be fixed?!
We’ve contacted all the water companies in the area to find out exactly who has responsibility for the drainage (have you ever tried to get a direct answer to this? It’s easier getting someone on the moon!) and have been categorically told it is the responsibility of Thames Water.
They have raised the work request to inspect the site and a technician should be looking at the problem very soon indeed – they say within 8 hours! Not days or weeks but hours. I can only hope they see what we do every time it rains – they’re blocked!
Lets see if they are cleared and the problem of flooding in the road is sorted…
Small update – Thames Water did indeed send out their contractors who have sludge gulped the drains… but they appear to still be blocked!
