Pavement and carriageway floods when it rains

Reported in the Flooding category anonymously at 11:03, Tue 30 June 2020

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 372986.

The pavement on Spalding Road, Pinchbeck, near the junction of Market Way is still flooding. I reported this ages ago and it still hasn't been fixed. When it rains, the flooding completely blocks the pavement and half of the road carriageway.

I have reported this multiple times to South Holland District Council. First of all they said the issue was fixed. When I reported that it wasn't fixed they passed me on to Lincolnshire Highways.

Please can this issue be investigated asap. It's been a problem for a while. This pavement cannot be safely used when it is flooded.

Photos attached include ones taken over the recent winter and a photo taken the other week from Market Way highlighting the issue.

  • This fault will be fixed as part of our next cycle of works. We cut the grass three times a year and treat weeds twice a year between April and October. We clean highway drains once a year.
