Blocked road side gully. Two grids are full of sediment which needs clearing. it was done so 3-4 years ago. Now every time it rains, floods the road. No rain these last days, but if it starts again, it's a risk of flooding again. Gully to be inspected to avoid this issue in the future.

  • I would also like to complain about the extreme danger of the potholes and sunken road trench in the road immediately opposite Aston Pottery and my house, 2, Westfield House, Bampton Road. The drain gullys are blocked and therefore completely overflowing with water as is the enormous depressed trench in the middle of the road left by Thames Water after their work on the new St. Joseph’s Court development. The size of the trench is an accident risk and we are having complaints about it from delivery drivers to the house, and in the recent icy weather, it also developed into a potential major accident hazard owing to the black ice that developed from all the water sitting on the road. With more rainfall due, there will also be a repeated flood risk over all this part of the road. This all needs to be fixed urgently before it causes a serious accident.
