The surface water drain outside 7 Wood Burcote has been blocked for several yearsd

Reported via desktop in the Blocked/Damaged category anonymously at 13:41, Tue 14 September 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3000468.

The surface drain has been blocked since Gigaclear came through several years ago and broke it. It cannot be cleared by the pumping crew who have tried repeatedly because we understand it is blocked with concrete. The road needs digging up. Because water cannot travel any further it gushes out and runs down the road. The drain pipe should be dug up and replaced but the repair crew always look at the wrong drains and don't repair the damage pipe. Muddy water gushes out and runs down the road turning down Besses Lane towards the new housing every time it rains. Nothing will help until the actual issue is addressed. The pipe is blocked solid and cannot be shifted by the heavy duty jetting truck.

  • The road was closed to fix this problem but it is exactly the same. Water pouring out of the drain and flooding the road.

  • This blocked drain is causing flooding of the wood burcote road and besses lane after rainfall and is also eroding the edges of both roads and caused me to fall over trying to avoid getting sprayed with water from a car.
