Quarry Road, Duston, Northampton by bus stop and opposite bus stop

Customer said the blocked drains are totally silted up for several years. The mud is so compacted that it needs to be dug out. The problem could not be solved with just a gully sucker tanker. The drains both sides of the street by bus stop are completely blocked up and causes flood further along by the pub and the resulting water floods the pavement too.
