Broadway flooded

The Broadway is flooded from its junction with Queens Road to Sussex Road. I know SCC do not recognise this problem, they call it ponding. All I know is that in this section of road there is deep water on both the road and the pavement. Anyone walking along this stretch will just get soaked if not from the rain then from the wash caused by passing cars. It is a good job it isn’t a school day.

I am sure SCC, on instructions from Central Government, will say it is exceptional weather. In a report published by Woking Borough Council in October 2013 it stated that one of the problems facing Woking was poor maintenance of the drainage systems or systems with insufficient capacity have contributed to flooding incidents. No action has been taken by our Councillors to this report, it just rests on their bookshelf.
