Drains on the road can be seen to be bubbling as they struggle to cope with the amount of water.

The waters level have been rising throughout the day leading most drivers to avoid the road completely though some have struggled to make it down the road.

A large amount of water collected on the road on Wednesday but witnesses said it appeared to drain quite quickly.
