  • The stream passing through Water Street in Somerton, Oxfordshire, has burst its banks. There is water gushing down the road. Please fix asap.

  • This is an ongoing issue in Somerton, The Parish council have been dealing with the county council for many years. OCC were sending contractors out to clear the culvert on a regular basis; this underground pipe blocks and needs replacing with a larger one. The sump on the waterfall side overspills onto the road. We were advised that drainage works to fix these issues were in place for this financial year - you have 19 days left! the highway is being eroded and is unsafe. You are not maintaining your assets!

    There are more issues further along towards Heyford, on the Heyford road; the drains don't work, water runs right past them, or they get blocked. Again we have been promised this would be addressed in this financial year. I have walked the village with several OCC officers to discuss the issues, it seems like it has been a complete waste of my time (for which I do not get paid!!)

  • This issue was not there over the last 35 years but lack of maintenance has led to a critical incident and repeated blockages and a dangerous road area for motorists
