Under rail bridge on Hall Lane, Sandbach

Reported via desktop in the Flooding category by Michael Halden at 11:13, Mon 24 October 2022

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3910249.

Every time it rains there is serious flooding under the rail bridge. Although this is reported by members of the public there is no response from the council to clear the flood water or clear up the silt and debris once the water recedes. Unless a driver wants to risk damaging their vehicle by driving through the flood the alternative is a long detour back to Coppenhall to get back to Sandbach. There is Red Lane and Elton Flashes roads but they tend to flood as well. For anyone living on the Canal Fields estate with a mobility scooter Hall Lane rail bridge footpath is their only route to Sandbach.

  • Thank you for contacting Cheshire East Highways. We have logged your enquiry and passed it to a member of our team.

    Our teams are working hard to manage and respond to reports from members of the public.

    We are currently experiencing an increase in demand of reported issues along with a temporary reduction in available staff due to Covid-related sickness and self-isolation.

    During this time and until the situation improves, we will be prioritising those issues that present most risk to the travelling public. While we normally aim to provide you with a response within 20 working days, response times for all other reported issues may take longer than usual.

    Thank you for your patience.
