Question

Constituents report persistent flooding on cycle superhighway 3 directly beneath Blackfriars Bridge. The superhighway runs adjacent to a fast road separated by a narrow kerb meaning people are not able to cycle around the water. Despite constituents having raised the issue with Transport for London (TfL) on numerous occasions, the problem has not been resolved. Will you ask TfL to conduct a site investigation and carry out remedial works?

TfL has investigated the flooding at this location and the drainage gullies have now been cleared. The site will continue to be monitored, particularly during bad weather, to ensure these remedial measures have been effective.
