Flooding in Upham [Updated 15 Feb]

[box type=”alert”]If your home is in real danger of being flooded or has been flooded already, please inform the Parish Clerk on 01489 860236 or email uphampc@homecall.co.uk. Anne Collins is in daily contact with the Emergency Control Centre and can request help where needed. ¬†Please only make contact if your property is in real danger.[/box]

There is a significant amount of both standing and running water on the road between Upham and the Morestead Road, particularly at the junction between Woodcote and Green Hill and through Blackdown.

The Environment Agency warns that properties and land in low-lying rural areas remain  vulnerable to flooding in the coming weeks.

Blackdown Lane is now closed due to the dangerous level of water in certain sections of the road and the proximity of the water to the adjacent houses. There have also been trees blocking the road over the last couple of days. Please do not use Blackdown Lane to get to the Morestead Road.

Please see the update on the temporary opening of Main Road, Colden Common and the update on Bus services through Colden Common

    Please try to use another way out of the village besides Blackdown Lane, very flooded now & waves of water caused by vehicles, no matter how slow you drive, are flooding our properties even more. We are having to continually dig out roadside ditches as they are being blocked by vehicles blocking them up with debris. Have contacted Environment Agency & WCC regarding closure of lane or at least flood warning signs. Sorry to moan, but just a little thoughtfulness goes a long way in this situation.

    Just to let you all know that Blackdown Lane is now open !!
    There is still water on the road, up to 9″ in places (sorry, not gone metric yet!!), and potholes are lurking!!
