Drain still blocked, months after first being reported

Reported via mobile in the The drain is blocked category anonymously at 12:41, Sunday 31 March 2024 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Gloucestershire County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5787374.

The drain under the road is still blocked. With the recent heavy rain, this has caused debris (mostly large stones) to be carried down the road and across the junction opposite the property shown as “Gayesbrook”.

This loose surface is obviously dangerous to road users, and is being caused by this blocked drain on The Ham.

Updates

  • Thank you for reporting a drainage or flooding issue.

    We will investigate the issue. If additional clearance work is needed, the local highways team will prioritise the most urgent reports. Where possible, maintenance tasks will be grouped together in a schedule for efficiency.

    Sometimes during periods of heavy rain, even a clear gully can be overwhelmed. Usually the water will drain away within an hour.

    Every gully or drain the county council is responsible for is cleared at least once each year. Some drains in problem areas are cleared more frequently. You can find out more, including the gully emptying schedule on our website by visiting www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/highways/roads/road-maintenance

    If your property is at risk of flooding please see the Flood Guide for advice and support by visiting www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/planning-and-environment/flood-risk-management/flooding-information/flood-guide

    If you are driving: please never ignore road closures or enter flood water. This could put you or others in danger and invalidate your insurance.

    We will provide updates about this report. Thank you again for taking the time to report this issue.
