Drain has been filled in / covered up

Reported in the Drainage category anonymously at 16:37, Mon 30 July 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 2 minutes later

The drain seems to have been removed / filled in during the installation of fibre network. As a result, the road is flooding even after a short shower.

  • If we have a cycle of freezing/thawing the damage to the edge, and more of the road will be severe. If anyone is just in an accident due to this I fully expect the council to be held responsible.

  • The damage to the road is now quite severe. The risk of damages to vehicles has increased. The worrying issue now is that the number of cyclists has increased through the village, and with the amount of parking opposite this road damage (pub traffic) there is a high risk of cyclists being seriously injured, especially if the damage has been hidden by water. I noted that this problem was flagged as "action scheduled" in August last year, but has yet to be "actioned".

  • Drain is still blocked. The road is flooded again.

  • After today's downpour, the road is flooded along the "repaired" area. The drain has been filled with mud and debris and is not draining rainwater.

    This has gone beyond a joke.

    State changed to: Open

  • The drain is not clearing the water from the road. The "repair" will not last and traffic is swerving close to parked vehicles to avoid the edge. It would help if the drain was reinstated and the matter resolved.
