Lately considerable sums have been appropriated for roads repair in many Russian cities. However it seems things haven’t got forward an inch…
The roads of the city of Pskov after 20-minute rain…
Aw, it’s the same thing here, too! (And i’m in America!!)
Al Gore was right! Global sea levels are rising.
Atleast it isn’t snow.
It happens here where I live everytime it rains. We call it “ponding” because the water appears to just be sitting there and not going anywhere. I live really close to the Chesapeake Bay in the mid-Atlantic region of the US. The water tables underground are high already so it takes a little time for the water to be absorbed, evaporated and drained offed into the various waterways, especially in low lying areas.
W Polsce to samo ;]
In Poland the same ;]
solution: buy a jetski for rainy days
America ? so what ? heavy rain is heavy rain..
Sometimes we have city road floods like that here in Lithuania(Europe) when the drainage systems is overflowed.. Nothing to see here move along
A warm summer rain is pleasant.
I’ve seen worst.
We’ve had over 7 DAYS of rain in Sydney (AU) and at least another 4 are forecast. And we only have a few minor road closures due to flooding.
A new Modern technology prevents flooding. It is called sewer systems.
Many Australian cities have a special storm drainage system separate to the normal sewers, to cope with very heavy rainfall.
It’s called “good planning” and “investment in necessary protection”.
That is standard operating procedure in the USA
Drive a NIVA and you will have no problems anymore
Where is a bus No 62, I wonder?
Dancing and singing in the rain, pupupi dup
We get these kind of floods every midsummer, mosly because unmantained drainage holes are always glogged with junk…
Methinks this is more of a stormwater management issue than a road repair one….
Me thinks I am last
Looks alot like Montreal after 5 minutes of rain. Our sewers suck.
Most rain sewers are built based on yearly average rainfall with some safety built-in for random peaks and not for random heavy storms. Cost/effect as this kind of “flooding” is mostly harmless and won’t last more than hours.
