Blocked Drains - Linden Road Bicester

Reported in the Drainage category anonymously at 19:55, Thursday 24 September 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The drain outside 2/3 Linden Road is completely blocked and has not been cleaned for several years. (see picture). When the gulley cleaning lorry arrives there are always parked cars blocking the drain. Road barriers around the drain need to be installed the previous night, as motorists completely ignore signage / no waiting cones etc.

ALSO - the drain between 19 and 20 Linden Road needs attention. Last year when the council were emptying the drain one of the workmen said he had caused damage to the drain which he would report for necessary repairs etc. To date, no repairs have been carried out.
