Storm drain lifts in heavy rain due to blockage

Reported via desktop in the Drainage category anonymously at 13:48, Monday 21 June 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

This storm drain is completely blocked with leaves etc. When it rains heavily the drain cover lifts creating dangerous road conditions for motorists and cyclists. This problem has previously been reported by our neighbour but you don’t do anything about it. The runoff water is causing potholes by the drain and beyond it. It is dangerous!

  • It’s hard to believe that this issue still has not been resolved. It is simple to deal with - just send a drain clearer! In the meantime it creates a dangerous situation every time that it rains heavily - which it seems to do frequently this Summer.
