Flooding - Riverside Drive

Residents have contacted me about the extent to which flooding has recently affected the east side of the bridge over the rail line on Riverside Drive (just south of the Botanic Garden) - see below :
I took up the matter with the City Engineer whose office has responded as follows :

"This particular gully is ... at the low point of Riverside Drive and this is where leaves are prone to accumulate, blocking the gully.   Roads Maintenance will attend and clear."
