Judy Lane, SK11 0LT drain outside Ridgelea

Reported via mobile in the Gully/Drainage category anonymously at 12:20, Friday 14 January 2022

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3240361.

The drain gully has not been cleared despite 2 visits by the lorry clearing the drains. It is overflowing even though it hasn’t rained for 5 days . Ithe amount of water flowing out daily is causing the road to break and potholes are appearing. The drain/gully lorry came on Wednesday (12 Jan) abd didn’t clear it and came again today (14th Jan). Stopped and had a look and drove off. It is dangerous both to pedestrians and cars when icy and is causing severe degradation of the road surface. Come on Cheshire East, do something about it! How many times does this need reporting before you sort it out?!

  • 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
