This drain has been reported in the past and it's still blocked, this also includes the drain on the opposite side of the road. A blocked drain sticker was put on the drain but no work was done to unblock the drain. Please can the drains be cleared as soon as possible to prevent flooding on our properties and the road.
This has been passed to the Local Area Technician to investigate.
We know that an important part of any road network is the drainage system which is designed to carry water away from the road surface. Even when a gully is clean and well maintained it will only cope with a certain volume of water at one time, a sudden and heavy downpour can still cause flooding especially if the road is in a low lying area.

We operate an annual gully cleansing programme, and our assessment has concluded that the issue reported will be resolved as part of this programme, should the team carrying out the clearance find any other issues these will be looked into and prioritised for a solution.
