Sluice gate could be the answer

I am writing in response to Mr Spencer’s letter of January 30 regarding Kenilworth Ford

I have resided in Kenilworth all of my 86 years and agree with Mr Spencer that it would be a waste of rate payers’ money to install signs to tell us the ford is flooded

It would not alleviate the havoc caused by traffic being diverted from the main road into Kenilworth side roads

However I feel that the solution to the flooding could be resolved by installing a sluice gate system on the Echo Meadow side of the brook. This could be adjusted to control the flow of water keeping the road clear of flooding and traffic moving
