Culvert Under Road Blocked and Running down the Street

Reported via mobile in the Blocked Drain / Gully category anonymously at 07:37, Friday 5 April 2024

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5809813.

This has been reported several times and someone comes out and digs it out for a bit before it blocks again .It doesn’t bother our property because we are up high but it is a danger to motorists and is washing away peoples drives . We’ve been here for 35 years and it’s never been a problem before but because you keep temporarily digging it out at the surface while it remains blocked under the road your remedial works last 5 minutes . Ignoring the problem is creating an unsafe road surface for motorists as the road is disintegrating because of the water flow . As we have a huge amount of increased traffic through Somerton since Upper Heyford was developed we need additional funding for the damage it is doing to our roads and this blocked culvert isn’t helping . Please come and do a proper job on it . The blocked culvert, the drain blocked further up, the potholes and the deteriorating road surface in Somerton makes the road through Somerton look like a river.
