  • Road surface currently being repaired today but the blocked drain has not been cleared, so the next rain will likely dislodge the road surface again. There are additional areas around the manhole where the road surface has been pushed up by the water pressure because of the blocked drain but these are not being mended today. Please arrange for the drain to be unblocked.
