Ditches blocked so road always floods in heavy rain

Reported in the Drainage category anonymously at 13:09, Fri 24 January 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 3 minutes later

This section was recently closed for a week for surface repair and new slips. Already the expensive new surface is being washed away here because the ditches are blocked and water flows out of them on to the road. Road gets covered in pebbles and debris. Ditches must be cleared.

Council ref: ENQ20855147

  • The ditches in Fox Lane have still not been cleared. As a result the road still floods every time there is heavy rain. The recent surface repair work on the south side of the road near the junction with Whitecross is being eroded by water and new potholes are appearing.
