The roadside drain is blocked. Heavy rainfall leads to run off from the fields in to the road which then accumulates as it cannot drain in to the river.

Council ref: ENQ21894811

  • Thank you for reporting this issue. The gully issue/blockage will be included in our forthcoming gully cleansing programme. As there are limited budget, we have to prioritise high flood risk areas. It is a common issue in Oxfordshire for rainwater to not flow away as quickly as it should, the water usually flows away after a few hours but if it has not then please report again. We will continue to monitor this on our routine inspections. In the future if you feel flood signs or sandbags are needed please call through to our main Highway line. Regards
