Warnings issued for roads in Hart and Rushmoor following heavy rain

Warnings have been put in place for six roads in Hart and Rushmoor deemed only 'passable with care' due to surface water

Water floods the roads in Eversley

Yet more heavy rain has led to warnings that six roads in Rushmoor and Hart are almost impassable.

Hampshire County Council has updated a long list of roads it considers to be significantly affected by flooding, with the two local authority areas now deemed unsafe following heavy rain at the weekend .

Warnings have now been put in place for four roads in Rushmoor and two in Hart after surface water problems continued to escalate following torrential rain after months of wet weather .

Chandlers Lane in Yateley, near the junction with Shires Way, and Long Lane in Odiham are currently described as 'passable with care'.

The council gives the same outlook for the B3014 Fleet Rd in Cove, Minley Rd and Middleton Gardens in Farnborough, and Church Lane East in Aldershot.

The Environment Agency has advised that Aldershot Sewage Treatment Works, located to the east of the town next to the A331, is discharging untreated water into the River Blackwater due to abnormally high water levels. Water normally undergoes a treatment process, but, with limited storage capacity at the plant to cope with heavy rainfall, on a number of occasions this has not been possible.

Yellow warning - meaning residents and commuters should be aware of potential risk and disruption caused by severe weather - have been issued by the Met Office for the south east for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this week, with no warning yet put in place for Friday.

All South West Trains services in north east Hampshire were running normally on Monday morning, after there was travel disruption once again at the weekend.
