Blocked drains on St John's Rd

Reported via mobile in the Blocked drain: Blockage inside drain category anonymously at 16:33, Fri 25 November 2022

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3993986.

The drains on the West side of St John's Rd near the sheltered housing and opposite the flats are constantly blocked. Every rainstorm leaves large puddles which are not draining away. In some of the puddles I can't even see a drain to know how it is blocked. It makes for a fraught walk in wet weather, hoping not to get soaked by vehicles driving through them.

  • This is a persistent problem in St John’s Road in several locations. Could be due to ground water level as well as blocked drains
