West St Floods

In West St people will soon be getting a fishing licence as there is so much water flooding the roads and pavements

The above is the scene outside the late shop today you can see its dangerous as cars can aquaplane on that much water and pedestrians often get soaked as cars go past. Its like a lake stretching to Derby St.

Out side Morris bike shop things are worse as here the pavement is also underwater and if you step into the road the water goes over your shoes. You will note that the floods match up the the disabled crossing points for blind people. and they shouldn't be put into this position were they will get soaked or hurt.

A bit further down West St and the problem is the same with big floods. It doesnt take very much rain to cause this. Lots of streets in Crewe suffer like outside Santander in the town. What makes West St different its not long ago that over £44000 was spent doing up the street with new pavements and road. The contractors have clearly failed to do a proper job on this and have set the angles wrong so the water doesnt drain away and most of it is in the disabled bits. I feel sure they should be made to come back and correct the cockup.

When will the council sort out all these flooded areas further down West st on the corner of Frank Webb the pavement floods every time we have rain and also opposite the off licence further down. I expect a lot of Crewe is suffering so lets get complaining
