Blocked drains on sharp bend 200m from Three Chimneys in Rothwell dorection

I refer to my previous report no 2592697 Your reply was, “Thank you for your enquiry, Site visited. No immediate flooding or safety defects found at time of visit. Gullies will be cleaned on routine cyclical maintenance.” I wonder whether an inspection was ever made of this site? For your information, I have taken photos today of the drains in question. As you can see, they will require digging out, rather than your suggestion of routine cyclical maintenance. Every time it rains heavily, this road floods and recently, it has been impassable to traffic; on one occasion last Autumn, three cars were stuck overnight here. Please reconsider your decision and arrange emptying.
