Blocked drain/gully problem

Reported in the Blocked drainage gully category anonymously at 15:13, Tuesday 19 November 2019 using FixMyStreet Pro

Water overflow on B1081 London Road St Martin's Without between Park House and the William Cecil Hotel. This is a major safety hazard in frosty weather as it is a 50mph highway. Anglian Water have reported that their drains are satisfactory and the cause is excess surface water and a high water table, which the road gullies cannot cope with.

  • We have had contractors on site on the 22nd November they have stopped the water coming out of the gully however there is natural ground water still leaching from the grass bank, it is anticipated this will stop once we get a dry spell of weather.
