Blocked drain

Reported in the Drainage category anonymously at 08:55, Tue 2 July 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later

The drain is totally blocked outside of Old Stocks and has been for some months. Water collects in a pool on the highway surface. If this persists when winter comes the blockage will cause a slip hazard.

Council ref: ENQ19836887

  • Well? The drain is more blocked than in July and short of waiting for the second coming I don't when you'll be unblocking the drain...

  • Can you please let me know when the drain will be cleared? It's solid to the top of the grating and now has vegetation growing out of it.

  • Still no action on cleaning this drain. It's fully blocked and water is gathering.

    It's quite likely that water will freeze when the weather turns.

    Please clean this drain.
