Flooding across both lanes exiting Milton Interchange towards Steventon

Reported via Android in the Flooding on Road category anonymously at 09:49, Friday 9 February 2024

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

Very dangerous, deep pool across the road - I witnessed a near miss pile-up here as people suddenly slow when they see the water and most are then moving into the middle or right hand side of the road. Also washing over the cycle/footway andno doubt contributed to by water constantly flowing from a drain over that path as reported previously.

Council ref: ENQ24991416

  • Sunday 11th February 2024 This problem has been evident for over 3 years. Each time it is reported it becomes 'under investigation' or 'problem fixed' . The problem is still there and obviously NOT fixed. Luckily we have not had any severe frosts to convert it into a skating rink.

  • Flooding is worse after last nights rain. Needs something done urgently

  • Today's view of where all the water flows out of the bank, over the foot/cyclepath - where it's been consistently wet for long enough that you can see specific water-based plant life thriving in the stream, and silt building up around it on the path and road

  • There is a lot of vehicle debris along this stretch, presumably pieces knocked off when the water is at its highest and people go through it too fast. This is a relatively low water day, yet there's plenty across one lane to make a big splash and cause sudden changes in speed/direction either through the impact with the water or last minute decisions by drivers to avoid the flood.

  • Milton Interchange splash park is enjoying the extra topup with today's rain, but the stream to it is permanent even when the weather is dry.

  • Completely flooded again, both carriageways. Debris from vehicles hitting it at speed (very hard to see at night) strewn everywhere. This issue has gotten MUCH worse since the construction of Bartlett place and Russet drive , clearly pushing run off water down the hill to this location. In the short term this needs a tanker to pump it out immediately , long term run off from the housing development needs addressing. As this issue has been reported numerous times over a long period anyone whos vehicle suffers damage due to this should put in a claim.

  • Is there any news on the investigation into this please? Drainage seems slightly improved but I hope no one is under the impression it's fixed because there is still a permanent river across the cycle path and into the gutter - ready and waiting to instantly get worse as soon as there's any buildup of silt in the road or heavier rain.

  • 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.com

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