6 blocked storm drains

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category by Alan Webb, Long Buckby Parish Councillor at 11:00, Thu 16 May 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 5 minutes later. ref: 1631445.

Six storms drains between the A5 and George Lane are completely blocked. One located at the 'traffic calming' is completely buried under debris washed down from the A5, three others are full to the top with debris. This has been reported by Long Buckby Parish Council clerk and chased up at least once. When there is heavy rain the water flows down George lane and much of it arrives at my front door and on occasions I have to lift a sewer cover to release the water. Please not that your map has the road wrongly named, it is not and has never been Station Road, it is and has been for some years Three Bridges Road, Long Buckby Wharf.

  • The drains were recently cleared and a fantastic job has been done, however one was missed which is the 3rd drain down from the A5 on the north side. This one is in desperate need of clearing.
