Sandbach Road South
Reported via desktop in the Flooding category anonymously at 20:58, Tue 22 November 2022
Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3985308.
Extreme flooding across road, particularly bad after rain. Footpath not passable, road flooded completely across its width for about 10m. Dangerous driving/cars skidding in water is a danger to pedestrians, mostly children walking to/from school. Flood has almost reached train tracks and cars are often backed up across the tracks, unaware they would have to stop there as flood is not visible until they round the corner. I imagine cars will be getting damaged, accidents will occur and I expect people will hold the council liable as nothing is being done to fix this now long-standing problem despite council being aware of it for months. Immediate action required please.
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.
