Storm drain completely blocked

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain: Blockage inside drain category anonymously at 17:55, Tue 28 September 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3030603.

Despite recent works on this drain, it is completely blocked. Water is gushing over it and across the junction with Old Bath Road. This drain is an ongoing concern because of the junction and the need to get the problem solved before the icy weather arrives.

  • The water is still running across the road and out onto the junction. This is extremely dangerous if this freezes as cars will go straight through into the traffic going up or down Bath old Road.

  • The camber of the road is insufficient to keep the water running towards drain. Also the overgrown hedge which is further up the road is also guiding the water away from the nearside out in to the road.

  • The water from the recent rains is still crossing the road at the junction making it extremely hazardous especially with the freezing conditions approaching. The recent works has not stopped the problem as the camber on the inside edge of the road is going the wrong way guiding the water onto the road instead of to the drain. If you need any help with the explanation of the above please contact me on 07759249430.
