Blocked gullies

Reported via iOS in the Drainage category by Rupert Molloy at 13:40, Thursday 21 January 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

There are 2 blocked gullies on the west side of the Kings Road; they have been in this inoperable state for years. The water does drain away somehow but during the downpours the road and pavements become hazardous as a consequence of surface water.

Council ref: ENQ21884936

  • 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
