  • We are aware of this standing water, Peterborough City Council have renewed the gully system and had the pipe work high pressure jetted. We have found the main surface water sewer on the opposite verge which is the responsibility of Anglian water is flowing slowly, therefore we have informed Anglian Water and asked that they attend and cleanse their sewer so as our highway drainage can be free flowing once again.

    State changed to: In progress

  • I Have now been informed by Anglian Water representative, that they have attended site and jet cleansed their surface water sewer, therefore this should now enable the road gully to free flow and eliminated the standing water concern. We will continue to monitor this during rainfall events.

    State changed to: No further action
