All storm drains on London Road completely blocked.

Reported in the Drainage category by Nigel Hinchen at 14:50, Thursday 13 August 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

This is both unsightly and more importantly dangerous as the road resembles a fast flowing river during periods of rain, causing the pathways to receive a mini tsunami every time a vehicle passes. Please don't wait until there is a fatality before this is fixed.

Council ref: ENQ20873498

  • Thank you for reporting this issue. The gully issue/blockage will be included in our forthcoming gully cleansing programme. As there is a limited budget, we have to prioritise high flood risk areas. Sometimes it is the volume of water that falls, and our drains are unable to cope, but the water eventually disperses. We will continue to monitor this on our routine inspections. Regards
