Water not not flowing in drains
Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain: Blockage inside drain category anonymously at 16:50, Thu 13 January 2022
Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3238687.
Seb Davis previous job 2455384 still not sorted, water is still not been directed into the drains at the bottom of Bristol Road, thus water flows onto the junction of Bristol Road and Bath Old Road and this morning we have a large sheet of ice right on the junction see pictures attached of which I have more but your reported system does not allow for more photos. Sorry if this does not sound polite but I lost patience with yourselves regarding this issue a long time ago!
Thank you for this report. We will review the details and carry out an inspection of the site if required.

I have lived in Bristol rd for 32 years and every year this has happened . Cannot believe there has not been a fatality . Certainly has been several car accidents involved minor damage caused by black and visible ice collection . The drains are insufficient for the amount of run off from the fields which was made much worse with lots of buildings being altered over time .

Water still running out across the road down towards the junction. In freezing weather this is once again going to be extremely treacherous in icy conditions. This been attempted to be repaired 3 times now. It needs to be sorted properly with the addition of a gully to help guide the water into the drain!!

If your engineers would like to talk directly to someone regarding why their work has not resolved the problem I would be more than willing to add the context of the surrounding area in an attempt to reach a satisfactory solution . We are affected every time the road freezes and there are several elderly and young children who live in the road who are always at risk .

Please see attached photos taken yesterday, as you can see the water still does not flow into the drains, but flows on down over the hill onto the junction where Bristol Road meets Bath Old Road. When the conditions become Icey it forms a sheet of ice on the Junction which is extremely dangerous. The water needs to be directed into the drains by some sort of gully. Could you please arrange for an inspector to visit the site again and arrange for work to be carried out that will actually resolve the problem.

Please see attached photos. This shows that the water running across the road is coming up through the tarmac in 2separate places and not from the drains above the junction. This is still leaving the junction at the danger of ice forming running across the junction and down the road. This junction is on a steep hill and this makes this junction very dangerous during very cold weather. This junction gets very busy at peak times as pedestrians walk up and down to the local school and cars and vans using Bristol road as a short cut. This will get even busier with the new housing estate going in further up Bath old road. Please feel free to contact me on 07759249430.
