A road which has been closed since the start of February due to flooding is set to reopen in time for tomorrow morning’s rush hour.

Works will be taking place overnight to get Godstone Road, between Purley and Kenley, ready for the reopening.

Foxley Hill Road will be closed at its junction with Godstone Road, between 9pm and midnight, so trenches can be dug for pipes.

The pipes are being used to drain away flood water from the area.

Stretches of the road have been closed since the flooding began last month.

A Croydon Council spokesman said: "We are working hard to get the road will be open in time for tomorrow’s rush hour.

"In the meantime those people who have been permitted into the area for access to homes and shops are asked to be careful when parking as incidents such as the one in the photograph have the risk of putting back the work we have done so far and could delay the re-opening.”
