Thomas Street subway exasperation

The heavy rain has once again seen the PSP underpass under Thomas Street flooded.  Tuesday morning it was ankle deep for pedestrians so I presume that the large number of Perth Mod School students who would normally use this access, took their chances crossing a wet and slippery Thomas Street.

The flooding has been happening since the underpass was constructed and despite numerous complaints, has never been properly fixed.  Given the number of times that the flooding has generated cleaning up work, I suspect it would have been cheaper to fix the problem at the start.   Doubtless this is an intergovernmental department arguement about responsibility, but in the meantime lives are being put at risk.
