A perpetual persistent puddle present danger to pedestrians
Reported in the Drainage category by Robert Somers at 22:17, Mon 26 March 2018
Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 3 minutes later
Surface water which runs down the RHS of Mount View towards Kings Road is unable to go to drain around the corner in Kings Road as the tarmac is too high. Passing HGVs are liable to drown passing pedestrians, a motoring offence. No attempt is made to remove the mud which accumulates once the puddle eventually dries up. The kerbstones around this corner are worn down. Re-engineering of the drainage levels is required to make this corner a safe place for pedestrians in wet conditions.
Thank you for your report, we are now investigating this issue and an update will be posted as soon as possible.

Please reopen this report and investigate how you can change the slope and enable this persistent puddle to drain away as all it can do is evaporate in the summertime. currently the building site beside townlands washes the mount view road every day to clear away mud and silt so the puddle remains a hazard for pedestrians getting splashed from passing traffic, as well as an iced area if freezing.

This problem remains and the kerb is broken as well as subsided, hence the puddle is always lower than the adjacent drain, thus failing to run to drain. Today it is muddy and stuck 18 inches away from the drain. 12/08/19
