Flooded public footpath

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council and South Oxfordshire District Council less than a minute later

Ref previous repeated faults (Council ref: ENQ21894864, and Asset ID: 290753425). The path has flooded again and is not draining correctly. Despite repeated calls on this the problem still exists and is unresolved. I have contacted the highway team (0345 3101111) and also raised a complaint (01865 323589). Highways have said someone might call me back tomorrow, which, notwithstanding is very vague, will result in nothing more than your inspector reporting that the issue has gone away because the path drains over a period of time. Its clear you have a blocked drain somewhere and so investigative work is required to locate that and remediate it. This fault can be classed as relating to heath and safety because the path is used frequently, including by young school children and older people. I would like a call to confirm what you intend doing to resolve this. If I dont get this call tomorrow I will go next to the press and also to my local councillor

Council ref: ENQ21905955
