    There are still closed signs about for Lobleys bridge. Its no longer too deep to drive through, however, the wash may still be effecting the Coopers Hill Houses closest to the bridge. I think the residents and police want it closed until these houses are no longer at risk.

    Lobleys Marina! Reports elsewhere on this forum suggest it's open again now.

    Bet they won't be selling many houses on Coopers Edge this weekend! No doubt the builders & estate agents will be rushing to change the brochures for the houses for sale there: "All houses now have private access to a stunning new natural 'wetlands & wildfowl' area" or "All houses have access to a boating lake/windsurfing lake/aquatic recreational area" (delete as appropriate)

    I can shed light on the lobblys thing, having spoken to a friend who lives there. Drain maybe blocked but builders cant check the pipe until water has gone away (words of builders) they pumped water into overflow pond (not connected to the road) and water went away. However police have closed road as it was to rain again, flooded again, people driving on pavements to get through, but are being photographed and info passed onto police who will be sending out fines (of thats what it sounds like from glos police twitter feed)

    Probably blocked drains Daveofglos usually due to fallen leaves at this time of year. Floods and blocked drains are par for the course in our Severnside village and, rather than wait for the Highways authority or whoever to do something about it, we locals take it on ourselves to give the drains a good poke with a cane. Why not try it? More often than not it does the trick!

    Not only Lobleys, but Waterwells, the M5 etc. It's about time Highways got a grip. Are we the only county in the country to have a motorway blocked because of a bit of water? The culverts and gulleys around motorways always were kept clear, and we have never had this problem before, yet this is the third day running it's been closed.

    Daveofglos - the water won't go away because they have built over the run off and there's nowhere for the water to go now.

    I wonder what's happened at Lobleys Drive - why has it now been closed for days? Why won't the water go away?
