Blocked drain

Reported via desktop in the Drainage category anonymously at 17:11, Thursday 8 October 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

In heavy rain, water flows from the main road onto the private driveway (leading to Linwood/Eden Cottage/Southview etc) A few years ago highways installed a drain on the drive. It doesn't connect to the drains on the road and over the years has become blocked.

Would it be possible to either have the drain cleared out, or even better a drain installed on the road at the entrance to the driveway.

  • Photo of rainwater running down the road and pooling at the lowest point. It then flows over the pavement and into the driveway.
