Flooded pavement

Reported via iOS in the Drainage category by Rupert Molloy at 17:23, Fri 22 November 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 2 minutes later. Council ref: 1858171.

The large section of pavement retains rainwater and leaf litter making it impassable unless wearing waterproofs, so the alternative is to walk on the carriageway.

  • Thank you for reporting this issue. The gully issue/blockage will be included in our forthcoming gully cleansing programme. As there is a limited budget, we have to prioritise high flood risk areas. Sometimes it is the volume of water that falls, and our drains are unable to cope, but the water eventually disperses. We will continue to monitor this on our routine inspections. Regards
