Ourside 216 /214

Reported via mobile in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 11:10, Tue 24 January 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 445439.

The road was resurfaced last May, and tarmac is completely covering the drain causing water to overflow and flood 214 drive. A jetting firm done all the drains yesterday 23/01/2023 but I heard the contractor open the grill and say he couldn't do that one. It's now eight months with several complaints later and still it's totally covered.

  • 4 weeks have past and nothing has been done. So now 9 months have past since the resurfacing work, when they decided to fill the drain with tarmac and leave it!

  • So now 16 months on, nothing has been done, huge ponding on our driveways and weeds growing out of it. I was told fix my street would sort this, but unfortunately over 8 months after reporting. Nothing!
