Drain silted up.

Reported via desktop anonymously at 22:39, Friday 9 September 2022

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

The drain pipe between the A40 & Thorney Leys Business Park, - which runs east-west at the bottom of the slip road embankment - is badly silted. I believe this is the outlet pipe for the gullies on the A40 slip road. which discharges into the Burwell Meadow drain just before it enters the A40 culvert.

If the slip road gullies cannot fully discharge during heavy rainfall, the surface water runs down into Ducklington Lane.
