Blocked drains along Church Way

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 01:35, Sun 13 October 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 5 minutes later. ref: 1802621.

Certain of the drainage grids down Church Way from the High Street to Bridgewater Drive are totally blocked with leaves preventing water from entering the roadside drainage system. The blockages have been present for a considerable period of time. In all probability the drains are also blocked due to leaves and tree twigs entering the drains and causing further blockages.

  • Sirs: I note the drain gullies appear to have been cleaned today but after completion I walked to the High Street and noticed they missed the first drain gulley South of the junction between Church Way and High Street on the East side of Church Way. There were leaves covering the drain gulley, which were easy to clear albeit the drain gulley was evident with leaves on top.
