Flooding of footpath outside number 32 chapelgate during rain, due to stupidly surface dressing of road on wednesday 17th of june.

Reported in the Flooding category by derek noble at 11:55, Thursday 18 June 2020

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 372565.

Here we go again . Why oh why do your engineers not inspect roads carefully prior to the laying of makeshift top dressing , just how high do you consider the road surface should be above dropped kerbs before you consider doing a proper job, My house number 34 , is approx 500mm below the level of the road . Even a moderate down pour after the chippings were laid causes the footpath at the dropped kerb to flood leaving standing water which in the winter can freeze, causing a hazard to pedestrians.
