Drain not able to cope during periods of rainfall

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 09:25, Thursday 14 November 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 6 minutes later. ref: 1845594.

The drain outside the front door to Carlsberg does not cope when it rain, this causes large amounts of standing water which makes it impossible for people to walk past when vehicles drive past as the splash often hits the wall of the building as the water often covers the whole left lane.

  • The web link you proved does not allow me to log this problem. This should be looked into urgently pedestrians are being drenched when walking past and it would appear that some cars are targeting them when speeding past in wet conditions.
