Road drainage not clearing water away
Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 07:44, Mon 18 November 2019 using FixMyStreet Pro
Sent to Lincolnshire County Council 1 minute later. Council ref: 359303.
The drain outside number 46 does not drain at all and therefore creates a pool which reaches the centre of the road and cars drive through it, sometimes at speed, creating a dangerous situation. The drain outside number 50(approx) 20m further down the road drains very well. This would suggest that there is a blockage in the drainage pipe between the to drain covers. A complete drain unblock is required. This was reported on Ref. 352019 and is now closed. However, this drain is still not draining water and is causing flooding. There is clearly a blockage between the drains outside number 46 and number 50 Mareham Lane, cars are continuing to speed through the standing water, an accident waiting to happen. I have noted all dates when this has been reported and it has still not been rectified. Last year a lady unfortunately passed away following a fall having been soaked by a passing van just a few yards away from this area, I would hate for this to happen again.
