Rainwater on Honeybottom Lane does not drain away

Reported via desktop in the Blocked Drain / Gully category anonymously at 10:42, Sat 16 December 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5326842.

Rainwater does not drain away on Honeybottom Lane on both sides of the road., creating potentially dangerous problem. There are no drainage channels and the drain is elevated. Additionally, the gully taking the stream under the roadway is blocked (adjacent to 76 Honeybottom Lane). Both these situations have been reported previously, but with no successful outcome.

  • Flooding still exactly the same after 4 days, even with little rain since 16/12. The road is undulating on both sides, and therefore needs a parallel channel cutting to the north edge and the short channels cutting on the south edges (at right angles) to enable rainwater to drain away.

  • On closer inspection today, there is water COMING UP THROUGH THE ROAD between 76 and 76A Honeybottom Lane. This is why the rainwater is not draining away. Can the appropriate authority please inspect, action and rectify very soon.
