55 &57 Spalding Road, Holbeach, PE12 7HH

Reported via mobile in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 17:34, Wednesday 24 May 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 460141.

Road gullies were cleaned and now work to some extent but during heavy rain, driveways at 55 & 57 still flood. This is due to the footpath sloping from road channel towards verge and hence water flows from road across footpath and then onto driveways instead of running along the road channel to a gulley. If the back edging of the footpath was at the correct level ie slightly above Road kerb level either side of the drives water would be directed to the gullies. This has been a long standing issue.
