Back to all reports

Broad Oak Lane frequently floods very badly.I believe that the cause is a blocked surface water drain in the highway. I should be grateful if you would investigate.

  • I do not believe that the drain has been unblocked. Could you please check your records. If it has not been unblocked, it will certainly cause further flooding as it has done several times in recent years. Do you need a photograph? Please note that the drain is in Broad Oak Lane (and not at the location indicated on the map). Its about 200 yds from the A287 roundabout. Thank you Philip Riley

  • I am not aware that the work has been done. There has not been sufficient heavy rain recently so its not been possible to check but i strongly suspect that the flooding will recur 9as it has done several times) if the drains are not propely cleared. Do your records show that remedial work has been carried out?

  • The road floods after heavy rain but, as we are experiencinbg drought conditions at the moment, its not been possible to check whether there is still a flooding problem. If you have not taken any action to clear the road drains, flooding will almost certainly recur. Can you please let me know whether any work has been done to address the problem? Thank you Philip Riley

  • I am not aware that any remedial work has been done. Can you please let me know whether any action was taken after my original report? If not I will only be able to check whether the problem has been solved when we get the next period of heavy rain. Thank you Philip Riley
