  • This is really bad again today - worse than the photos above. The drainage is either blocked or insufficient for the volume of water. Pedestrians are having to walk into the traffic on Beckenham Lane to cross Recreation Road. Water is completely submerging manhole covers. If there are electrics/gas in there, and water begins in flow into the chamber, this could cause major issues.
