Road flooding onto our drive

Reported via desktop in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 10:17, Tuesday 5 October 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 35 minutes later

When it is raining the road flows down to the bottom where it is collecting and coming over our drive. In heavy rain, this is leading to our garage flooding from where the rain water is coming down. The road is now not flowing leading to the drains correctly to both drains therefore building up and coming down our drive? However every time there is heavy rain my partner and myself have to go outside and sweep rainwater away from our garage.

  • Thank you for your enquiry. Due to current weather events we have issues with flooding all over the county. If you feel your property is at risk, please contact the emergency services or contact our call centre on 0345 310 11 11 to request sandbags. If this road is impassable, please let the call centre staff know and we can get the road closed or erect flood boards. Sometimes it is the volume of water that falls, and our drains are unable to cope, but the water eventually disperses. We will monitor this area on our routine inspections. Regards
