Blocked drains in The Avenue, Stevenage

These two drains in The Avenue have been blocked for years. I regularly clean the mud away from the footpath and did so recently. It rained yesterday and the picture shows water across the footpath at least 12 hours after the rain stopped. Children to Barclay and Thomas Alleyne regularly use this footpath on the way to school.

  • The problem has got worse with the recent heavy rains, mud has covered the drains again and the path floods fairly regularly.

  • These two drains have been blocked for many years and reporting the fact, almost four months ago, is probably a total waste of time as I am sure that they will never be cleaned.
