Tidal floods on Hawthorne Pde, Haberfield

by DAL, 28 Jan 2017

Tidal flooding is a major issue on parts of Hawthorne Parade Haberfield. When tides are above 1.8m up to 2m, the road floods; at the highest tides, the road is completely covered. There is a section of about 100m affected by these tides and we have already had one quite new car written off due to salt water damage.

The area affected is around numbers 220–260 Hawthorne Parade and the last time this occurred was mid-January 2017. It occurs every high tide.

The photo attached shows the depth of the water on 17 January 2017. The site says I can upload a video, but it doesn't seem to accept it when I try. I would like to include it, as it shows the speed of the water gushing from the stormwater drain.

Thanks for sharing the picture and story of flooding in Hawthorne Parade. It would be great to also see the video you mention. The way to do this is to insert a hyperlink to it on a video sharing service like Youtube or Vimeo (rather than uploading to the Your Say site).
