Outside Hawksby Cottage, Judy Lane

Reported via mobile in the Gully/Drainage category by Clive Bucknell at 14:17, Wednesday 12 January 2022

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3235507.

After many months of waiting, the gulley clearing team attended Judy Lane today. Some drains appear to have been cleared but, inexplicably, the worst drain and the one that causes the flooding of the lower part of the lane, was not cleared. Therefore the problem that has been reported many times still exists. See attached photo. Now request that this drain is urgently attended to.

  • Further to my report of 2 days ago - The gully clearing van arrived this morning and cleared more of the drains on Judy Lane. I spoke to them and confirmed that they would attend to the one outside our property. They said they would. I saw them look at the blocked drain and then drove off without making any attempt to clear it. So, as per the attached, we have a severely blocked road drain causing a stream which is rapidly eroding the highway surface. Once again, can you please dispatch the team to finally unblock the drain.

  • We deal with gullies based on the level of immediate risk. We have assessed this location and it is not considered to present an immediate danger to highway users at this time. We are due to empty the gullies here as part of our routine programme in the next 12 weeks. This means we will not visit before the scheduled visit unless there is an immediate threat to life or the inside of property. You can find out the scheduled visit date by visiting our website: highways_and_roads/ road-maintenance/ gullies-and-drains.aspx
