Gully grating blocked at WV56+M4W Sunderland Drive

Reported in the Gully and Catchpits category anonymously at 11:31, Wednesday 18 September 2019 using FixMyStreet Pro

There is a severe flood risk in this area. This is an example of a blocked gully grating in Glory Farm. Many others are blocked with leaves and rubbish and should be cleared every time the road is swept. Unfortunately the road sweeper sweeps the rubbish into the grating. Here is the location:- maps/ wd8FZKCnsh1gBrDY6

  • The gully cleaner with two operatives was observed in operation this morning Monday 30 September 2019 on Sunderland Drive and Herald Way. I don't know why these two gullies on Sunderland Drive which are the same ones that were reported as ref: 1771799 were not emptied. You said the gully issue/blockage will be included in your forthcoming gully cleansing programme and you will continue to monitor this on your routine inspections. It would appear that the operatives either are working to an alternative agenda so that they perhaps have more work to keep them occupied on a future occasion, or have a serious eyesight deficiency which would preclude them from participation in future operations. Kindly give me your comments.
