Blocked drain causing flooding
Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 13:07, Fri 15 November 2019
Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 4 minutes later. ref: 1848077.
I reported a blocked drain causing flooding over the road and pavement yesterday via telephone as I was concerned about the water coming into my property as it is set below the level of the road. Nothing has yet been done and although the flooding has subsided somewhat today as you can see in the pictures, any more rain and I think it may overflow again. I am also concerned that this is on a blind bend and cars are having to go the wrong side of the road into oncoming traffic to avoid it.
Further to the original report please be aware that there are three road side drains at this location and all a blocked. The Inspection cover of the chamber serving these drains is broken (see photo) and the chamber blocked. This continues to pose a problem for traffic with vehicles pulling out onto the offside in face o oncoming vehicles of a bend.
