Blocked drain

Reported via desktop in the Drainage category anonymously at 15:48, Fri 18 December 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

This drain has been blocked for several months as can be seen from the series of photos. While I appreciate your remark that generally ‘water eventually disperses’, as you can see from these photos that is not the case in this instance. There is no pavement in this road and pedestrians including schoolchildren are forced to walk in the middle of the road. Please deal with ASAP.

  • 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. If you feel your property is at risk, please contact the emergency services or contact our call centre on 0345 310 11 11 to request sandbags. We will continue to monitor this on our routine inspections. Regards
