Bad flooding making driving dangerous

Reported via mobile in the Flooding on Road category anonymously at 15:51, Thursday 22 February 2024

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

The A4130, Abingdon Road outside Rustlings (now called Pine Ridge) and the Steventon House Hotel constantly floods due to blocked drains. Driving is becoming more and more dangerous. I have seen flooding constantly over the last 18 months.

Council ref: ENQ24993651

  • This is one of the blocked drains. Excess water causes traffix to use the oncoming lane, an accident waiting to happen.

  • 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.
