The wrong kind of snow

A27 flooded in 2012
The Worthing Herald reports:

Despite £800,000 being spent fixing the drainage on the A27, the busy trunk-road is still vulnerable to flooding with fed-up motorists facing yet more delays last week.

After months of disruption and lane closures in 2012, the dual carriageway still could not cope with the volume of water coming off the South Downs this winter.

But the Highways Agency denies that its drainage work has failed, arguing that it was never meant to deal with this kind of flooding.
