Flooding due to inadequate drainage

Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 15:03, Mon 22 June 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

During recent heavy rain, road is flooding. There is only one drain on the road and it is both blocked and on the wrong side of the road. At least one new drain needs to be installed, so the rain water can get into the ditch. I would be delighted to show someone the detail. The problem has got infinitely worse since the road was resurfaced a couple of years back, which altered the camber of the road, stopping the runoff from getting into the one drain.
