The Flooded Roads Map helps you identify roads prone to flooding, so you can factor this information into your planning. It uses data submitted by public users during 2015-2018, which gives a limited historical snapshot and should not be considered comprehensive. Scroll down, enter the postcode for your planned travel and be prepared.

Disclaimer: This map does not provide real-time flood data. Information has been collated from a range of sources with varying degrees of credibility. Any action you take based upon the information is at your risk. Please see full disclaimer.
