Letter to the Highways Agency

24th February 2015


Dear Highways Department,


You may remember that I wrote to you on December 8th regarding the subway between Halifax Rd and Albert Royds St which so many of our families use for safe transit to school being flooded.  Your department acted very quickly to drain the flooding because our families were having to cross a very busy dual carriageway as a result of the subway being impassable.


I am writing today with the same issue having arisen again.  The subway is flooded and we are worried that our families are once again risking the traffic rather than wading through the subway.


As a short term measure, could the subway be drained as a matter of urgency again?  I also wonder if there is a more long term solution along the lines of improving the drainage system so that this health and safety risk is not one that recurs. 


I look forward to hearing from you and thank you once agin for your support for the health and safety of our children and families at Hamer.


Yours Sincerely,


Simon Moore
