Drain cover collapsed into drain

Reported via mobile in the Loose / Raised/Sunken category anonymously at 18:51, Friday 16 October 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2344404.


A storm drain cover has collapsed into the drain.

It was either the 3rd, 4th or 5th drain cover on the A47 headed East towards the A1 from the Duddington A43-A47 roundabout.

I was cycling and had to swerve violently into the road to avoid the drain, which would have thrown me from my bike.

In my opinion the exposed drain poses a significant obstacle and could write off a car if they drove over it and / or cause a significant accident.

This should be fixed immediately.

Kind Regards,

Jake Cartwright
