Flooded Roads Map

The only way to stay safe is to stay out of floodwater. The best way to avoid floodwater is to make sure you are prepared – whether that’s staying in or finding a safer alternative route to travel. Scroll down, enter your postcode and get prepared.

The Flooded Roads Map uses real-time data and user reports to give you a picture of the flood-risk for your journey, helping you plan a safer route from A to B. You can also report flooding incidents and share your alternative route suggestions to help other drivers arrive safely.
