Road flooding during heavy or prolonged rain

Reported via desktop in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 00:49, Wed 7 October 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2329286.

This refers to incident No 2326360. Many thanks for clearing the drain gullies but regrettably this has not resolved the problem. As originally stated there is a blockage in the drain system after the manhole outside No 11. This causes rainwater to back up, lift the manhole cover outside No 11 and flood both sides of the road outside Nos 5, 6 & 8. The drain gullies opposite No 15/17 appear to be unaffected suggesting the blockage is between No 11 and No 15

  • Despite assurances that this problem has been fixed, therse photos taken shortly after 3pm on Wednesday 16th December just after a minor rainfall suggest otherwise. As can be seen water in the gullies out side No5 and No 6 have risen and water is trickling out of the manhole cover outside No11. The water subsides when it stops raining suggesting the problem is not blocked gullies, but a blockage in the culvert in the drain system after the manhole cover outside No 11 but before the gulley outside No15

  • Rained this morning and we have a small flood outside no.6 Again. This is a persistent problem whenever rain falls, and sending a truck to suck up silt and water every time it’s reported does not solve the problem. When will you send someone to properly survey the drainage system in this street no find a resolution to the problem.
