Back to all reports

All the drain grids from The Lealand to the county boundary are blocked with gravel and vegitation.

Reported in the Blocked/Damaged category by Robert Osborn at 14:25, Mon 21 September 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2305050.

Since the new grids and culverts were installed a few years ago I don't think they have been cleaned out and when it rains the road floods and pedestrians get soaked also one grid has the benching missing, a regular sweeping would help to cut down the amount of grit that accumulates during the winter.

  • I walked from The Lealands, East Farndon to Watson Avenue, Market HARBOROUGH today and counted 13 blocked drains. The road and footpath are filthy and require sweeping. This is a busy footpath and pedestrians are forced into the road (and the mud) to maintain social distancing.
