Close to Fancott Pub on opposite side of the road

Reported via desktop in the Surface water on Highway category anonymously at 14:12, Monday 29 April 2024

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 406079.

Flooding happens as shown in the photograph every time it rains, and rarely is this section of road and footpath dry. Due to the constant flooding the footpath is very slippery with green slime. This is extremely dangerous for pedestrians who either have to walk on the very slippery footpath at risk of falling over and also of being drenched by passing cars, or walk in the road, at risk of being run over. Pedestrians can't see oncoming traffic due to the location of the flooded road/footpath. Its also dangerous to walk on the opposite side of the road as this is a blind bend and there is no footpath.
