Flooding across the pavement in front of 3 Milestone Lane.

Reported via desktop in the Flowing water, life or property at risk category anonymously at 10:33, Thu 25 August 2022

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 430347.

The highway drains do not gather and drain away the surface water from the road. There are sunken/uneven kerbs permitting road water to flood across the pavement and then down a slope and onto my drive. At times of normal rain, this road water is caught by my gully and drains away by way of a 6" domestic gully. At times of heavy/torrential rain this 6" drain is swamped, and my driveway and gravelled front garden have standing water several inches deep. On 17 August the exceptional rainfall swamped my drive and even entered my garage. By sheer chance there were no items on the floor to be damaged by water, but even so this situation is not acceptable. Please fix your faulty kerbs and uneven pavement to ensure that highway water remains on the highway and is taken away by highway drains.

  • Your update regarding this problem (Ref: 430347) on 6 Sept. 2022 was 'Action Scheduled '. I did notice 2 yellow paint marks on the path about that time (now faded away), but no works have been undertaken and the problem still exists. It is now 28 May 2023, and 7 months has passed. Please advise when the works will be undertaken.
