  • An inspection of the area was carried out at 12:34hrs today (17th August 2020) no surface water present and all gullies were clean and water levels below the outlet pipe. Speaking to a local resident they confirmed the road drained down quickly once the rain had stopped. All highway gullies are working as designed unfortunately this is a capacity issue whereby there is more rainfall than the drainage system can take as such surcharging occurs at the lowest point of the network, it was noted there are a lot of properties with paved or concreted surfacing and no internal drainage this adds to the impact as private water is flowing onto the public highway.

    State changed to: No further action
