Every time it rains Hawleys lane cops for it. Its been like this for years, Its about time the problem was solved instead of patched up.

Gives the highways contractors some big money to put those signs out and to close the road, easy money for them, cheaper to build a sump pump or put automatic electronic road closure signs up, WBC can spend our money on what will be classed as an emergency, despite all the history for this site, JOKE.
Let's see a costing printed in the Guardian for all the road closures over the last ten years pluss? Thousands and Thousands (even hundreds of thousands no doubt?)

My comments were not about sand bagging residential streets,
They were about a road that has flooded every year for donkeys years and never been really repaired to the point of the drains working.

People going to Dallam or Bewsey have a long walk round because of it, Although I have seen kids go over the railway to save time..
