Drain still blocked

Reported in the Drainage category anonymously at 10:12, Tuesday 4 February 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 3 minutes later

A blocked drain was reported over 3 weeks ago. An update came through to suggest the drain had been fixed. However there is still standing water in it and it appears to be blocked. Every time it rains the road floods and causes issues with cars driving on the wrong side of the road. I have witnessed at least 3 near crashes in the last month.

  • Can confirm. Still flooded. I have to walk along this stretch of pavement daily and as well as the road and pavement being flooded from the blocked drain, I have to run the gauntlet of cars passing and splashing water over me.

  • This issue has still not been fixed and is very dangerous to both drivers and pedestrians. It is also causing issues with nearby properties.

  • A local builder kindly came and cleared the drain as it was taking so long to clear. OCC please come and take the soil away that was blocking it. Thanks
