Regular blocking of trench drains

Reported in the Gully or manhole defect category by Phil Hemsley at 18:03, Tue 18 June 2019

Sent to Warwickshire County Council 3 minutes later

The concrete trench drains at the junction between Buchanan Road and Bilton Road block very quickly, and then when it rains there are large puddles. The rough surface of the concrete and the small holes are unsuitable for this location. Small particles get stuck in the holes and they quickly block. I have cleared them by hand sometimes, but the best solution is to increase the size of the grid mesh, or convert from concrete to steel grid.
