I'm now waiting for the A19 at Fulford to be closed because of the flooding. Can't money be invested in raising the level of that road so it doesn't flood yet again?

I'm bemused by the BBC coverage constantly going live to Kings Staith and mentioning it as 'the situation in the city centre', trying to make it dramatic. 'This pub under a METRE of water...' - the Kings Arms spends half it's time under a metre of water!!! It's hardly news!

I thought that a contribution by the Germany Beck developers was promised, specifically for this purpose.

Perhaps it was, but as Germany Beck floods regularly, who in their right mind would want to buy a house there?

Well no, there are more important issues; like 20mph speed limits and `arty` barges costing £275,000.

EA and NYCC have just announced that the bridge over the Ouse at Cawood has been closed to allow the flood barrier to be raised. just a precaution at this stage though as not expected to get that high.

With respect we live in a small city that floods multiple times a year. Surely campaigning for better flood defenses should be a given for our MP? However, sadly although Hugh has a lot of it, hot air and self congratulatory blogs wont reduce the flooding anytime soon.

As a resident of Fordlands for 9 yrs, the beck has probably topped about 3 times, if I remember correctly, yet in the last 2 mth its gone over twice. Annoying but I wouldn't class this as regular. The roads flood but very few houses are affected. The planning application detailed improvements/heighte
ning of the road systems to stop flooding. With the backlash against the development and the economic downturn this isn't going to go ahead for years. Perhaps the beck needs digging out to increase its capacity.

The developers are required to raise the road level as part of construction of the access road and junction. The site for the houses is above the beck, the concern is where the water goes that currently spreads across the A19 and Fordlands Rd - downstream to Naburn, Bishopthorpe, Acaster Malbis etc Its also not clear whether the developers will raise Fordlands Rd enough for it to be above the floodwater, so they could still be cut off down there with new houses adding to the run-off in the area into the new 'lake' along the line of Germany Beck.

Surely all the A19 needs is the bridge wall extending over the low area. As a person working on Fulford road it is no fun having to go into york in the hope of finding a bus, also why do our posh new "Information Screens" show services which are not running, they actually make the matter worse by giving a false hope of a bus.
