Blocked gully on Lower Street

Surrey County Council’s Highways team has investigated the gully in Lower Street near the pedestrian crossing that floods during heavy rain events. This is an issue I have raised as a priority with the highways team as it presents a significant health and safety issue for pedestrians and cyclists accessing the station. 

The highways team attended site yesterday with the jetter and cleaned / jetted four gullies via three man hole chambers and traced the line back to an open ditch system at the back of Haslemere House.  The system was completely blocked but is now clean and working. They will monitor during the next rain event.  When the restrictions are lifted I will arrange to meet up on site with the Highways team to make sure the system is working well.

I very much appreciate the Highways team work on this.
