  • After spending more the 10 days utilising manpower & plant to resolve this problem ,the issue of flooding at Dam Dykes Railway Crossing has not been resolved. At some stage hopefully in the very near future it will be realised that the only real solution to this & other flooding issues on Arcot Lane is to divert spillage to a natural water course. Please Respond
