  • Please note a number of the other drain grills downhill from this one are also ‘silted up’.....

    Can they all be checked and cleared please, especially given this is a busy main, arterial road?

  • The gully grate has been reported by our drainage contractors as being stuck - it will have to be freed by the Highways contractors.

    Once this is done, the gully will be cleaned.

    We are aware that this report is still outstanding, and we are still liaising with colleagues in Highways to make their repairs so the drain can be cleansed .
