Blocked roadside gully drain

Reported via desktop in the Drainage category anonymously at 10:09, Wednesday 21 October 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Blocked roadside gully drain - blocked for over a year and it is raining again so standing water is building in the gutter on the main road into Thame. Pedestrians getting splashed and some traffic avoiding running through standing water. Surely this drain needs to be cleaned out and kept free flowing? Drain is by the white crossing line in the third photo.

  • Thank you for reporting this issue. A gully was jetted in this area recently that was reported to us. 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
