Blocked road drain / gully trap at 203 Hurdsfield Road, Macclesfield

Reported via desktop in the Gully/Drainage category anonymously at 18:34, Tue 23 August 2022

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3775971.

The gully trap outside 203 Hurdsfield Road, Macclesfield, was previously reported as blocked on 16 August 2022. The online gully tracker shows that this gully #790041860 '41861' is now scheduled for August 2024. It was worked on today (Tuesday 23rd August 2022) by a CEC contractor (Dodson) about 13:15. When I walked past at about 13:45, the water level was flush with the top of the grating. When I walked past later at about 15:50, the water had gradually soaked away to reveal that the trap was still silted up to just below the grating, as shown in the attached photograph. Whatever work was done was not sufficient to clear the blockage and therefore the contractor needs to return sooner rather than later to carry out remedial work.

  • 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.
