This month we have seen the return of TFB to Valley Road and the promised works have continued.
Just one additional road drain is planned in this round of work – this is located by the bus stop outside village hall community shop.
The bulk of the work is targeted at improving the flow of surface water piped underground from the bottom of coombe lane through to the open ditch that runs down to the pumping station.
To this end, an additional pipe is being added (two exist underground at present) and also several chambers are being added to help flow, connections and access.
Any works to improve the road camber will be the subject of future works, but we understand that the current round of work should involve raising the lip to drives to the houses that have been flooded in the past.
