The long running saga of the flooding outside Kingsway Junior School in Garston has now been resolved before school re-starts for autumn term.
This has been possible thanks to Garston county councillor Tim Williams asking Herts County Council to tackle the matter.
The issue at the entrance of the school in Briar Road has been on-going for many years, with councillors and many residents regularly reporting the flooding to the council.
Until now Herts County Council have been saying that it’s a “ponding” issue that evaporates after a few days.
County Councillor Tim Williams has now convinced Herts County Council to do something about this and the relevant works were completed in August and when pupils return in September there will be no more flooded entrance for children and parents to navigate around.
County Councillor Tim Williams said: “locally this flooding outside Kingswood Junior School has been a source of complaint for many years so it’s great to finally get this matter resolved with Herts County Council.
“School entrances are always congested at drop off and pick up times so removing this flooded area gives more space and eases congestion.”
