When a pumping station can’t cope, the water’s got to go somewhere ...

Mays Meadow flooded again - August 2007

Looks like the pumping station at Mays Meadow, where the road goes below the water level of the River Lagan, failed again. It has happened before and no doubt it will happen again.

Part of me wondered whether the cost of clearing up each flood is less than the cost of fixing the root problem, so they just let it happen ... or maybe that logic is too sophisticated!


The Edge is well named ...

The footpath is raised a lot higher than the road, so you're ok for a walk.
