Flooding on Shipton Road

March 9, 2016

At the peak of the Boxing Day Floods properties on Shipton Road in Rawcliffe were very nearly flooded.

Running parallel to Shipton Road is a culvert running into Blue Beck which caused this isolated flooding. Julian recently visited the site with local Councillor Stuart Rawlings and spoke to residents whose homes were within inches of being breached by the flood waters.

Julian and the ward Councillors have made representations to Yorkshire Water and the Environment Agency to ask why the culvert is not entirely sealed and what effect full culverting might have on water drainage in the area.

The fencing is also in a state of disrepair and currently presents a danger at night and when the area is in flood as the culvert is completely invisible.

Commenting Julian said, “It is important that in the short term proper fencing is put in place around the culvert in the interest of health and safety. When the area is in flood the drop into the culvert is completely invisible, so anyone wading through the water who does not know the area well could easily fall in.

“The broken fencing at the top of the culvert, and the lack of protection at either side, clearly present a danger to the public so it is important that this is rectified as soon as possible.”
