The drain was found recently under layers of mud and soil, so I'm not sure if it's even logged on the Council's system. Either way, it's full of mud and currently no use as a drain. Given the regular flooding of the lane in wet weather, it would be useful to get this drain cleared.
This has been passed to the Local Area Technician to investigate.
We know that an important part of any road network is the drainage system which is designed to carry water away from the road surface. Even when a gully is clean and well maintained it will only cope with a certain volume of water at one time, a sudden and heavy downpour can still cause flooding especially if the road is in a low lying area.

We have completed our inspection of the issue and have made arrangements for it to be resolved within 6-8 weeks.
