5:00pm Monday 27th January 2014 in News
PERSISTENT flooding under a bridge is “extremely dangerous”, according to a parish council clerk.
The underpass on the A303 (C29) became flooded during the recent bad weather.
Overton Parish Council clerk Laura Harley told the latest parish meeting: “It’s extremely dangerous.”
She pointed out that Hampshire County Council is currently carrying out work on the C29 as part of Operation Resilience, but added: “It seems it would be more important to deal with the flooding under the bridge.”
Cllr Brian Langer said the problem was long-term, adding: “This has been going on for years.”
He described the response from Hampshire County Council after reporting the problem as “pathetic”.
