Weston Hills road sinking following road

A road was reported to be sinking following the recent heavy rains.

South Holland district councillor Anthony Casson told Weston Parish Council that it had been a busy Christmas due to issues around the village as a result of flooding.

He also told the virtual meeting on Monday that there was an issue with Austendyke Road on Sunday.

Coun Casson said: “The road is cracking. I have got plenty of emergency numbers to get the drainage board out. They came out and put bollards down there.

“It was just sinking and was dangerous. It is really more of a Highways issue than a drainage board. Trying to get hold of anyone from Highways is more or less impossible.”

He had also reported that there had been issues in Weston Hills following the heavy rains before Christmas.

Coun Casson said: “I have never had a Christmas with so many different issues and things to do.

“There were huge problems after that heavy rain regarding sewage. A number of properties did not have flushing toilets.

“The village hall car park that was half flooded again and half of that I am sorry to say was sewage.

“There has been lots of problems.”

A number of issues with the road along Broadgate in Weston Hills were also raised during the meeting.

Coun Richard Pratt said: “There a pavement outside 278 Broadgate and a big hole has appeared in the surfacing which will be a hazard. It is getting bigger and bigger.”

Coun Ben Halgarth told the meeting that a hole had appeared on the road outside Broadgate Builders. He said that it had gone through three levels of tarmac. These are being reported to Highways.
