Drains are covered by silt and vegetation

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 09:36, Thursday 23 July 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2212968.

I have reported this problem before about 6 months ago but nothing has changed. A lot of the drains from the County boundary to 'The Drove' turnoff are similarly blocked which with a downpour cases the road to flood and you get rivulets of water on both sides of the road.

  • Still open, via questionnaire, 21:17, Thursday 20 August 2020

  • With the rain that we have had the you now have to drive dangerously close to the centre line and vehicles are doing the same coming the other way to avoid being dragged in to the side 'streams' that are flowing due to the blocked drains.

    Only a matter of time until an accident. East Northants Council-DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
