Near 2 Tushmore Lane, Crawley, RH10 8JJ
West Sussex - Langley Green & Tushmore Ward
Road drain broken. I have been reporting this issue for 18 months and the issue has not been resolved. The first drain in Tushmore lane adjacent to the hand car wash is pumping out dirty stagnant water which is now all over the footway and road. This issue disappeared for 3 months during lockdown with the closure of the car wash but has now reoccurred since the car wash has reopened. An elderly lady fell this morning at approx 0830 whilst trying to avoid the area. I was informed she went to A&E

Closed Enquiry closed : Thank you for your enquiry. We have visited site and spoken with car sales company at which point the water appears to be eminating from. It would appear that a service water pipe was damaged when new private fencing installed, The car sales company will inform their landlord. There is a footway on the opposite side of the road which is free from obstruction that can be used. Once the matter of the potential water leak has been addressed, we will monitor the highway drainage performance. Regards, WSCC.
