Thames Water have been busy in the area this week, mostly near the junction of Upper Ham Road and Ham Gate Avenue, and they have a lot more work to do.
There are several small leaks around another junction, Ham Parade and Parkleys, where there have been small pools of standing water for as long as I can remember. It looks as those there are now being addressed as I noticed that the area around one of the small covers has been rebuilt.
There is a bigger leak further down Ham Parade, on the west side, that smells as though it is waste water.
The biggest leak (at the moment) is just off Debden Close in Royal Park Gate. Water is gushing out like two taps running on full power. The water is flowing down to the cycle path where is has spread out some way in both directions.
