Still blocked after all these years....

Reported via Android in the Blocked Drain / Gully category anonymously at 11:40, Sat 14 January 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 4127573.

Words fail me how you can just not address this problem. We have had blocked surface water drains ((foreground) for years and NOTHING done apart from putting up a Flood sign. Brilliant.

Council ref: ENQ23944177

  • A massive lake forms right across the road whenever there is anything more than light to moderate rainfall. It's been happening for more than a year, I suggest that there is a problem with the drain - reduced capacity due to a blockage, or something similar.

  • Our gully cleansing contractor has been unable to clear the pipes to get the drainage system working. OCC will undertake further work to identify the cause of the failure of the drainage system and a solution. Whilst we are responsible for the highway drainage, the problem can be related to other service providers such as Thames Water, or could relate to a private ditch, stream or culvert.
