Constant Water on Road due to Blocked Drains

Reported via desktop in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 14:21, Wednesday 3 February 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2522017.

Due to the many blocked drains on this road, whenever it rains and for days afterwards we have running water down the road including where the blocked drains are and further into the village where the running water crosses the road again. In cold weather any grit that is put on this *hilly* road is just washed away and the road just becomes icy. Also any pedestrian walking along the path will more than likely get soaked as a car drives past (from experience!). This has now been reported for over a month, please can get some timelines or actions.

  • This is still not fixed and there are MULTIPLE drains on this stretch of road that are not clear even after the 28 days comment. I note that the drains further than the road in the village have all been cleared (they had no blockages to start with), yet the ones that had an issue are still not cleared.
