Vegetation Serious Overgrown Blocking Drain

Reported via mobile in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 17:54, Tuesday 12 April 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3455589.

There is a drain here which isn’t even logged on fox my street presumably because it has been covered and obscured by the overflowing vegetation for so long.

Vegetation needs cutting back, grit and dirt removing from drain and some tarmac out down to allow water run off from the road surface to the drain here.

There is also a drain buried in the verge on the other side of the road in a similar condition that needs all the vegetation overgrowth removing and the drain uncovering, cleaning and tested and then a small bit of tarmac laid to allow water run off from the road to flow into it.

Both drains also need logging and inputting into the fix my street database for future reference
