Prior to resurfacing works, can you supply us with detail/diagrams/plans of the sub surface drains?
Some years ago, to drain the road outside where it pools after heavy rain, a pipe was laid under the road into the car park, and then a deep drainage sump was made which was lined with concrete rings, probably about 5ft in diameter was dug in the car park into which the pipe ran. We would expect that there was a manhole cover to the sump, but we can’t see it on the ground. Before Contractors set to work, we need to find this pipe and the manhole access to clear/ unblock it and ensure it is not damaged during essential works. We think these works may have been about 15 years ago.
