Blocked Drain Causing Huge Puddle.

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 16:04, Mon 10 June 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 1 minute later. ref: 1654911.

Following recent persistent rainfall, unserviced drains are causing large puddles and floods of water across the A4500. This particular one is frequent and can be deep and therefore nasty. The A4500 all the way from Weston Favell could do with some attention, weeds are growing out of the drain covers!

  • This road floods at two low points between Rectory Farm and Ecton. The drains on this road need clearing more regularly.

  • Reported in June, update says work will be completed within 6 months. Though it looks like the gullies have been cleared, this report has not been closed and still shows as being in progress? However, the open gully is not at the low point and the gully on the opposite side of the road is blocked.
