The drain has collapsed that goes under the road

Reported via mobile in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 12:04, Thu 12 October 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 473678.

This has been an ongoing issue for about three years. I was told until BT replaced the pole the drain that runs across the road to the other dyke couldn’t be fixed. BT have replaced the pole today and now the drain entrance is covered over with mud and can’t even drain a little like before the entrance to the drain has sunken

  • Hi, I am next door and saw this after the BT contractor had left today. It is a concern with the wet season on the way and nowhere for the rain water to drain away.
