The rainwater drain outside 28 Mulcaster Avenue (OX5 2HQ) on the street is about to fail. There is a hole on one side of the tarmac that goes straight through to the drain (see photo). The pipe inside the drain is severely damaged (see photo) and is broken. This is a key drain in the street as it's at the bottom of the street so all the rain water runs here (see photo from a few months ago). I noticed the hole a few months ago but it's bigger now and investigating the drain noticed that the pipe was broken.
