All along Park Road the drains are not being maintained

Most of the drains along Park Road are blocked to some extent. Please make sure this is rectified and that the situation isn't allowed to constantly re-occur as has been the case for the last few years.

  • I have spoken to the member of the Drainage team that deals with Didcot and they are not aware of a generalised issue with the drainage along Park Road nor could I find one recorded on the Highways system. There was a recent enquiry, pem 767488 for o/s 27 that has been dealt with and I have requested updates from the enquirer if the issue persists. OCC_M_B

  • I have sent the evidence to the council that proves they are mistaken, I await their response.

  • Tuesday 23rd May 2017 After three days following a reasonable amount of rain, the standing water along most of Park road has filtered through the blockages in the system. However, between Nos 23 and 27 Park road there is still total blockage of the system. Gully clearing every four years is obviously not working.

  • Mandy. There has always been a problem with Park Road, and always will be until regular maintenance is carried out. The member of the drainage team can't have gone back very far. Bill Major 7th September 2017

  • Hi, reopening as due to the length of this thread I think closure should only happen after rain and no problems seen. Thank you for undertaking an action that is intended to resolve the issue. Let's wait and see if it has worked. Action may be confirmed complete but resolution of problem not confirmed.

  • The gullies were inspected recently and defects raised for the ones that were leaving ponding on the carriageway. The one on the junction of Colbourne Road that was causing issue has been passed to the drainage team, requesting further investigation. These gullies will be monitored as this road is one of my monthly walked routes.

  • The council response shows that further action is required - and walking along Park Road this morning proved it. Status should be changed back to open from no further action required because further action is required!

  • I have advised that this issue is being monitored, to be monitored it does not have to have an enquiry open. I have also made the Highway and Drainage team aware of the issues along here and will raise a defect so it is added to the list of sites they have to deal with.

  • Thank you for report. We have forwarded it to our Highways and Drainage Team who will consider it when planning their future works.

  • Thank you for your enquiry. I have visited the site and assessed the problem that you have identified. Unfortunately it doesn't meet our current intervention criteria so I cannot arrange a repair. We will continue to monitor this during our routine inspections.
