Blocked Drains

This problem was reported to Fix My Street in September 2016 and nothing has been done about it. The Drain and now several more farther up the road are completely blocked with silt, so that when it rains the water comes out a drain higher up the road and flows down the road and floods.

  • This drain and several others have been blocked for over a year when it was first reported on fix my street ,and no action was taken then. I also reported it to Council Connect in October and still no action.

  • The problem of the one drain was fixed but the bigger issue is that most of the drains farther up the hill are also totally blocked as they have been for the past year. The action at this present time that has been worked on has only helped to stop flooding in this area, water still flows down the hill on the surface of the road , this is not going to be safe when it freezes, my concern is that this is the rout for the local school coaches.

    State changed to: Fixed
