This particular drain is at the entrance to Badger Close and is not shown on your interactive map. It is totally blocked as can be seen in the attached image. As this blocked drain in not functioning the excess stormwater caused severe flooding at the speed bump 30m downhill where the existing 3 drains are overwhelmed. The drains at the speed bump are the subject of more that 20 posts in the last 30 months. The solution to discharge the stormwater ponding at the speed bump in question is to simply form gutters at either end of the speed bump. The gutters have be formed at the other speed bumps along Main Street, but this particular one was not constructed properly. This speed bump defect was inspected 2-3 months ago with a recommendation to action remedial works, which is still awaited. Can OCC please action both of these reported problems without further delay.

This is the same totally blocked gully. Submerged with stormwater flowing at speed above it to overwhelm the ponding at the speed bump 30m away downhill.
