Ditch Clearing works - completed
Ferry Lane North
Working with the Council, the BID has part funded some ditch clearing works to aleviate some/all of the flooding in Ferry Lane North.
Extensive works have been carried out in the Ferry Lane North area - ditch cleaning / gully repair / drain connections have been completed. Working alongside Essex Water, the area has been jet cleaned and is now running freely along the length of Ferry Lane (north and south) down to the Thames.
There has been a tremendous improvement with flooding in these areas. Some local heavy rain recently saw the previous flooded areas clear so it is hoped as the winter weather sets in, there will be no flooding, or if the area suffers from very heavy rain over a short period of time, any flooding that occuers it will be quickly disperesed as the drain runs are clear.
This has been a long drawn out project for the Council and they are confident the problem has now been resolved.
