Most drains across bridge do not remove water resulting in wide puddles across roadway.

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 16:23, Wednesday 3 June 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2141046.

The situation has been bad for years and is definitely worsening. Strengthening of bridge arches is due to complete in 8 weeks and road is to be resurfaced. It would make logistical sense to investigate and rectify the drain problem NOW.

  • Please can you confirm that the drains were cleared before the resurfacing took place. I cross the bridge most days and did not see any evidence of this work being done. The resurfacing is complete and the bridge due to open this week.
