Adjecent bridge and gateway to filed at the bottom of the valley on Church Lane
Reported via desktop in the Gully/Drainage category anonymously at 10:20, Fri 27 May 2022
Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3555566.
This grid/gully has been blocked since 2018 without any attempt to clear it. I reported this issue with ref: 3323151 in 2018. Ref: 3347634 in 2019, and again in 2020 Ref: 3408836. No action was taken for any of those reports. The road surface around the grid, as a result of being constantly flooded, has now started to break up severely, which will cost more in repairs due to your inaction. Anyone in your authority suggesting it has been cleared since 2018 is lying, plain and simple. There has been a crash on the bridge causing damage to a car and the bridge as a result of black ice. The ice would not have been there had the grid/gully been cleaned. You then added black and yellow reflective signs to highlight the existence of the bridge (wasting tax payers money) but at no point considered that the blocked grid/gully was the cause of the ice and the crash. A quite staggering level of utter incompetence.
Thank you for contacting Cheshire East Highways. We have logged your enquiry and passed it to a member of our team.
Our teams are working hard to manage and respond to reports from members of the public.
We are currently experiencing an increase in demand of reported issues along with a temporary reduction in available staff due to Covid-related sickness and self-isolation.
During this time and until the situation improves, we will be prioritising those issues that present most risk to the travelling public. While we normally aim to provide you with a response within 20 working days, response times for all other reported issues may take longer than usual.
Thank you for your patience.
