West Sussex -
West Chiltington, Thakeham & Ashington Ward
There was serious flooding last night (12/12/19) at the jct of the B2139 and Abingworth Crescent, with 20cm depth of water for 20m+ on both roads. This is particularly dangerous at this location because it is adjacent to a traffic calming pinch-point. Although by this morning (13/12/19) the water has receded to drain level, the main drain under the B2139 at this location is clearly still full to road level and is not draining properly. It needs clearing urgently, otherwise any further rain will immediately recreate the flooding problem.
