Flood Warning Still In Effect….

1040 Thorney to Whittlesey Road to the South of the River Nene

Flooding is expected – immediate action required

Due to the heavy rain that fell over the River Nene catchment during the Christmas period, the Whittlesey Washes flood storage reservoir is being operated to protect nearby communities from flooding. The use of the Whittlesey Washes has resulted in flooding of the B1040 road. Water levels are starting to fall in Whittlesey Washes but it is expected they will remain high for many days. Whilst the Flood Warning is in force, the Local Authority may close the B1040 for safety reasons. Diversionary routes will be put in place and further updates will be available through local media. This Flood Warning is expected to stay in force for several days until water levels recede. Please follow diversionary routes until the local authority re-open the road. We are monitoring the situation, and this message will be updated on Friday 8th January, or as the situation changes.
