On Tuesday, the road was closed as a result of flooding as a result of heavy rainfall. 

Sproughton Road regularly floods after heavy rainfall, with the road being closed on a number of occasions due to standing water.

Repairs to surface water drainage infrastructure are designed to prevent further flooding in the area.
