Since the closure of the bridge, the Environment Agency has lowered the threshold at which the flood warning will be issued for Darley Abbey and Folly Road. Flood warnings will now be issued when Haslams Lane is expected to flood, as this is currently the only vehicle access/egress route to Darley Abbey and Folly Road. This is so that residents have time to evacuate before Haslams Lane becomes impassable. They will still issue the flood warning at a higher level when we expect property flooding.
