Severely blocked drain outside number 12 Friday street, on the corner of these two roads. So blocked, weeds are growing out of the drain.

Needs to be solved as when there is heavy rain it floods the roads every time.

  • 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
