Blocked Drains

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 10:38, Thu 22 August 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 3 minutes later. ref: 1740797.

There are 3 or 4 blocked drains in Ashton Road, Hartwell, on the corner starting from opposite the entrance to Lower End, and the entrance to Oakleaf Care, these drains are on the corner footpath side. these drains are completely covered with vegetation of all sorts, and you can hardly see where the drains are along this part of the road. This as been on going for some time, can I ask you to see if you can get the drain lorry to come out and address this issue. In the past workmen have been out using long poles or similar to try clear the problem, it hasn't solved issue. It really needs the drain lorry to resolve this issue.
