Recurring blocked storm drain on A417

Good afternoon Fixmystreet team

I would like to report a recurring problem (previous instances of reporting below) where this persistently blocked storm drain is causing water splash from passing vehicles to hit the gable wall of our house, kitchen window and now actually coming in through the window. This is unacceptable and has caused considerable inconvenience this afternoon in clearing up and drying this internal area.

My own observations indicate there are two drains on opposite sides of the road and both are blocked to the outlet ditch. Previous inspections appear to have only (partially) addressed the drain closer to our house.

Please can you arrange for this to be reinspected and resolved as quickly as possible; I am very happy to assist with locating the drain(s) if helpful. Please also see my telephone number below.

My previous reports for the same issue have been from this same account in 2015 and 2017.

Council ref: ENQ19844806
