Water spillage from fields at junction

Reported via desktop in the Flooding on Road category anonymously at 13:46, Thursday 8 February 2024

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

Have just driven from Bampton to Brize Norton and the road is badly flooded in several places especially at the junction to Lew due to excess water flowing from the fields as the gullies are full to bursting or clogged. All traffic is having to drive very slowly, but if the water is still there when it’s dark it will be even more dangerous. On the road just after the camp gates entrance near the pumping station, the manhole is leaking water causing more flooding further up that road. Very dangerous situation.

  • In response to your enquiry and the numerous others we have received regarding the recent flooding and associated drainage issues. We understand the inconvenience and distress that such incidents can cause, and we appreciate your patience as we work to address these concerns. Our team has been working diligently to assess the situation and implement necessary measures to mitigate the impact of flooding. However, due to the volume of enquiries and the complexity of the issues at hand, we have been unable to address each individual report.

    Therefore, after much thought we have decided to close down reports relating to drainage matters during the winter months as after investigating the data it was apparent that many of the fixmystreet reports/issues were caused by the sheer volume of rainwater that fell meaning that the drainage system was unable to cope due to ground water saturation. We are aware of many areas across the county where flooding occurred and are currently working in conjunction with district and parish council towards addressing these issues.

    If you feel your enquiry does not fall within the scope of the above, please raise a new report with a detailed description including photos where possible/ safe to do so via www.fixmystreet.comhttp://www.fixmystreet.com.

    We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter. Rest assured; we are committed to resolving these issues as quickly as possible.
