Water not flowing into drains effectively

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain: Blockage inside drain category anonymously at 15:09, Thu 31 December 2020

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 1 week, 6 days, 19 hours, 55 minutes later. Council ref: 2455384.

Moderated by Bath and North East Somerset Council at 10:34, Wednesday 10 February 2021

We are still waiting for your representative to come out and discuss what can be done to stop the water which flows down the hill on the Radstock end of Bristol Road from missing the drains and running down onto the junction where Bristol Road meets Old Bath Road, freezing causing a hazardous situation see photo on the left taken this morning, yesterday it was even worse!!. This water then continues to flow onto Old Bath Road and causes a large area of black Ice directly on the brakiing area above the traffic calming as you go down the hill towards Radstock. We have reported this to for the third time now, it is not just a case for unblocking the drains, the road needs to have some sort of gully added on the left hand side so the water is completely drained away and does not freeze on the junction. If someone does not arrange to come out and discuss he situation I will be contacting our MP Jacob Rees-Mogg.
