Notorious Brighton flood spot gets bigger drains

A road which floods every time there’s a downpour has been given bigger drains to cope with flash flooding.

Union Road dredging
Work to expand the drains under Union Road, Brighton, took place last week to increase its capacity, with one lane of the road closed from Wednesday to Friday.

It’s hoped this will help it cope with heavy rainfall and that the ponds which regularly form there will be a thing of the past.

A council spokesman said: “The gully in Union Road has been cleaned approximately once a month over the last year. Work took place to help to increase its capacity, with the lane closure in place while it was under way.”
