Blocked drain in Townsend Rd opposite Boxer Rd

Reported via desktop in the Flooded road category anonymously at 17:32, Wed 23 December 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2445568.

There is a blocked drain in the road outside my house , 'Annandale'. It causes flooding on an already dangerous blind bend. This occurs whenever it rains heavily. A secondary problem is that the flooding raises the adjacent manhole cover in the pavement, dislodges it and creates a serious trip hazard.

  • This gully system has been cleansed, the main surface water pipe system in Townsend Road is the responsibility of Anglian Water, as such should this sewer surcharge again this can be reported to them direct on 03457 145 145. Please note during intense rainfall the system may be at capacity due to the open ditches they outfall into being full.

    State changed to: No further action
