Blocked culvert

The culvert at the bottom of Benfieldside Road, which regularly overflows during heavy rain to flood Snows Green Road, is being cleared of debris by the County Council.

There is also a scheme proposed to create an enlarged hole in the wall on Snows Green Road to divert any future flood water back into the Snows Green Burn.  This should prevent a lake being formed, which has previously blocked the road and overflowed down into the village centre.
