Railway bridge on Burton Lane

Reported via mobile in the Standing water covering more than half the road category anonymously at 08:41, Tue 12 December 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 482568.

The flood is so deep that emergency vehicles cannot get through. With elderly people living in an isolated village in the winter this is of real concern. This should please be moved up the priority list.

  • There is no signage along Button Lane from the High Dyke to say this road is impassable. Having to turn round at the railway bridge is far from easy!!

  • The bridge is filling up again. The drains must be damaged or blocked. The village will be cut off from the emergency services over Christmas if nothing is done.
