LETTER: What was the flood relief cost?

I am wondering how much money was recently spent on installing flood relief in Fishbourne Road East at the junction with Clay Lane.

Many tens of thousands of pounds, I would expect! Anyway the amount is academic now because it hasn’t worked.

I have just been down there at 5am on Christmas Eve and the whole area is under two to three feet of water.

I feel very sorry for those people who live along there as they may well be flooded again! This has led me to wonder if this is another example of the dumbing down of our university education system. Maybe the civil engineers on the project got degrees in media studies!!
