Reported via desktop in the Blocked drainage gully category anonymously at 14:44, Monday 1 February 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2516513.

The drain is not able to cope with moderate rain, resulting in surface water building up until it overtops the crown of the road and exacerbates the problem on the south side of the road

  • This gully has been cleansed and all detritus removed, these gullies outfall into soakaways, however during this inclement weather resulting in ground saturation the soakaways become waterlogged thus making the gully appear blocked.

    State changed to: No further action
