Blocked drain in Pudding Bag Lane....AGAIN!!!

Reported in the Blocked drainage gully category anonymously at 13:18, Thursday 18 June 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2161747.

Every time it rains this drain blocks and an obnoxious aroma can be smelt in our house. (We are also having a problem with drain flies which I believe are connected to this situation). Previous visits to clear the blockage have not solved the problem as you will see from the photos. Please can this drain be investigated further.

  • Good afternoon, this gully has been fully cleansed and the pipe work high pressure jet cleaned, thereafter a cctv survey was carried out and this confirmed the gully outfalls into a soakaway, as such during intense storm events the soakaway will become saturated and thus can not take any more water, resulting in standing water on the carriageway. I will consult with my highway maintenance colleagues and see if this soakaway could be extended / renewed to help with the surface water discharge.
