Tiepigs Lane Flooding

The cause of the flooding at Tiepigs Lane has been identified; a river culvert has become blocked on Network Rail’s land which has resulted in water backing up into the road.

After a meeting yesterday with council officers, the Environment Agency and Network Rail are now dealing with this as the two responsible agencies and the EA have plans in place to protect the vulnerable nearby properties in the event of heavy rain.

As your local councillors we will continue to monitor progress on this urgent issue.
