Blocked drain caused flooding at junction North Lane & B430

Reported via desktop in the Drainage category anonymously at 20:58, Monday 3 May 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Road has flooded at junction of B430 and North Lane due to a blocked drain which has been previously reported. Understand there are works required to fix drain issues in this area but this blockage is as a result of debris from works on adjacent footpath. The water doesn't rain away very quickly and is unsafe on low vehicles and cyclists (including elderly). Many thanks (PC)
