Flooding road when it rains

Reported via desktop in the Flooded road category anonymously at 19:02, Wed 23 December 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2445696.

This has been reported several times. The road is flooded the drain can not cope when it rains. It floods the whole road and I am concerned that it cause damage to number 6 and 8 Overton Way properties as that is where the flow of water will end up, down both properties as this is lower than the road where it is flooding. Please can this be looked at again. Tree roots are hindering the drainage.
