Blocked Drains on Oxford Road

Reported via mobile in the Drainage category anonymously at 09:12, Thu 29 October 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

I’ve been reporting blocked drains along the Oxford road for a number of months. This still hasn’t been satisfactorily resolved as you can see from the picture. Access to the school is blocked whenever it rains and neighbouring properties are soaked by the wash.

Council ref: ENQ20879411

  • This problem is still ongoing, the drain is regularly cleaned out by your truck but every time we have heavy rain the water floods the road which there is blockage or collapse further down the line.

  • Report (again) of blocked drains outside my property on Oxford Road. The water floods the road and cars splash water up to my front door.

    The gates of the Junior school opposite flood, and the pavement becomes impassable.

  • As you can see the drains are total blocked and need cleaning, plant life growing out of them now

  • 19 Oxford Road The road drains are extreemly blocked now causing the subsidence right across the road to the school. When it rains and the water can not drain it is becoming very dangerous. The water is gushing into our garden and up the exterior wall / windows of the house resulting in possible long term damage.

  • This has been an ongoing problem for a number of years and SODC do absolutely nothing about!! Perhaps if we all withheld our Council tax it might concentrate their mind to do something about it, but I am not holding my breath!!!!! Steve Redwood

  • Apologies for the delay in response. Due to the length of time since it was reported please can you confirm if it is still an issue by creating another report on Fix My Street.
