Storm water drains still blocked

Reported in the Drainage category by D M Harrison at 18:52, Thu 19 January 2017

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 3 minutes later

The storm watre drains between 116 and 118 High Street on both sides of the road still overflow. As the problem was diagnosed 3 years ago as a collapsed drain further down the the High Street, isn't it time it was sorted?

  • Road works at the new pedestrian crossing have disrupted the garden adjacent to the crossing causing stones and garden debris to fall onto the path. (Trip hazard)

    Fix:- Raise the in curb stones back to the original height next to the gardens. Now would be a good time as the path has been lifted for the forth time to rectify previous mistakes to the electrical systems.

  • Drain on east side of High Street reported several times over the years is still unable to accept anything above light rain. Please sort this as Speeding cars throw the water onto my drive and often onto me!!

  • How can the issue be closed if the problem still occurs? Is this just Council speak for "we are ignoring the problem and hoping it will go away" Please remind me on what my Council Tax is spent on, I am assuming pointless administration.

  • 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.

  • If you visit now, 1702 on 07/11/17, you will find a huge pool of water over these drains. There is no point in visiting when it is not raining!!!!!!!!! I would have thought that basics.

  • Pavement outside No91 is worse since the pedestrian crossing installed.Garden kerb not raised back to the original level hence debris on the pavement. Arrival point to people hard of sight or blind is a disgrace, and more of a hazard than if it had been left alone. It is a trip hazard to the with good sight!!

  • The two issues in this report, the overflowing drains and the footpath are still ongoing. Every time it rains, the storm water collects at the bottom of the drive of No 118 and the speeding traffic throws the often dirty/muddy water all over the vehicles and people on the drive. The drains on both sides of the street between 116 and 118 High street fill up and then do not flow away as Thames Water found some 4 years ago that the main drain down the High Street is obstructed, yet nothing has been done. As to the footpath then please see the separate report describing the poor workmanship and creation of 2 further trip hazards.

  • Thank you for sending your 2 man team on 16 May. As I have explained before and explained again to the team, clearing out the gullies will not solve this issue. There needs to be a joined up action with Thames Water to resolve the collapsed drain further down the High Street. As the residents have the information and experience, why is no one listening to it???

  • Could you please advise how, with no action other than on 29 Jun a guy coming out and talking to me about the issue, this has been resolved?

  • The recent rains have created a flood across the road because these drains are still not draining away. I fail to see how, after no action, this can have been resolved.

  • If OCC isn't going to get this issue fixed or insist that Thames Water come and sort it, then can you please come out before the rain is due and deploy some "FLOOD" warning signs. Maybe then the speeding traffic "might" slow down and not throw muddy water 8 feet up my drive over my vehicles and me. Photo taken at 0820 this morning after 10 minutes of mild rain.

  • Still no resolution to this issue despite numerous "inspections". The recent rain and snow resulted in me twice getting soaked whilst on my drive as drivers sped through the flooded road.
