Near 5 Cecil Pashley Way, Shoreham by Sea, BN43 5FF
West Sussex - St. Nicolas Ward
A particular section of the embankment footpath, between the railway bridge and the steps down to Cecil Pashley Way, has been regularly submerged in 1-3 cm of water since October 2019. There is one large puddle, and several smaller areas nearby.<br/><br/>The problem is that the path is impermeable and there is no drain. The water just pools on the surface and cannot run off due to the wooden path edge on one side, and flood wall on the other. It is impossible for path users to go around. I would hope the wooden edge can be modified to as to allow run-off.
