Reader's Photo: Alderley Road flooding (again)


Ian Tasker kindly sent us this photo taken this afternoon (Wednesday, 8th December).

He said " I wondered what the point was of closing Alderley Road to repairs for weeks at the beginning of this year. NOT to alleviate flooding if the photo (above) taken this afternoon is anything to go by."

What the public want: Safe, well maintained roads.

What the public gets: A zero carbon police station.

At least they tried to do something about that one. The road under the bridge by the station was impassible again this morning... just has it has been every time there has been heavy rain in at least the last 20 years that I know of.

I wonder if the new properties to be built on R/L and Alderley Road where this '... once in a lifetime' flooding now occurs more frequently than a 'Fawlty Towers ' repeat , will have to pay a premium for flood insurance ?? ...

Floods in Wilmslow are on the increase, why ? I have never known such disruption in over 40 years.

Are the people/contractors /managers employed by Cheshire East responsible for the repair and maintenance of our roads up to the job ? I think not.

Have these people observed the damage to the roads outside the Royal London caused by contractors heavy goods vehicles or are the rate payers going to foot the bill.
