Northwood Residents’ Association has taken action to try and combat the problem of persistent flooding on Copsewood Way.
The group have decided to take these steps as the road continues to flood and create problems for both pedestrians and drivers.
Tony Ellis, chairman of Northwood Residents’ Association said that pedestrians often have to take alternative routes due to the high levels of flooding.
He said: “Many residents will know of the persistent problem of flooding in Copsewood Way, which often makes transit impossible to pedestrians, causing them to divert through the Gravel Pits.
“Following the recent assault in the Gravel Pits, the committee felt it was no longer desirable for residents to take that route and we asked our environment representative, Andrew Egan, to take the matter up with Thames Water.”
The resident’s association and Thames Water are now in communication and the water company are carrying out a camera survey after carrying tree roots from pipework, with an update expected at the end of January.
