  • Tuesday 26 Oct 21 engineers/contractors clear gully drains of debris - LCC close task as complete (an occupant of Victoria Avenue discussed the problem with contactor, only to be told that they can't identify any connection in the roads that would allow water to flow out of the gully drains??)

    First heavy downpour 30 Oct 21, identify that the problem is still apparent and just by clearing the debris in the drains has not corrected the issue. Further investigation and works required to correct the issue.

  • 31 Oct 21, further heavy rain. Pictures show flooding, standing water at London Road junction. London Road clear with no standing water, this road has good drainage. However, Victoria Avenue Gulley Drains are still not draining, even after contractors cleared gully drains of debris. Further investigation is needed to identify the problem and correct the fault/issue. This is a danger to vehicles and pedestrians (getting soaked by passing vehicles).
