Road outside 55 station road mk43 0ps

Reported via mobile in the Flooded Property category anonymously at 16:15, Friday 18 June 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 357950.

There has been a big flooding issue since we have lived here. There is no drainage on this bend of road which means everytime it rains the road gets flooded. The kerb gets covered in water making it hard for cars to see it so they often mount the kerb not knowing where it is. It also prevents me being able to leave my house as its so bad you cant go out there or else you get absolutely covered in water if a car goes past. It splashes all over my driveway and often up my front door too making it filthy. Nobody can walk past on the pavement as they get absolutely drenched by cars driving past as there is absolutely no way for the cars to avoid the massive flooding. I couldnt get out the house to take my daughter to school this morning as there was quite abit of traffic passing through the village and we couldnt even get across the road due to the amount of rain that had collected there and fear of being soaked by passing vehicles. The water was so bad it was actually over my ankles when i finally braved going out to see exactly how high the water had risen. There needs to be a drain system put in place there. Its dangerous and often prevents us leaving the house if its raining.
