Drains Blocked

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3979165.

Drains blocked reported previously response was will be fixed during annual maintenance should have been mid 22 never happened This neglect is causing floods during heavy rain and pedestrians being slashed by vehicles it’s is also result in maintenance covers lifting causing a trip hazard Ultimately the damage being caused by the water constantly running in the gully will damage the surface resulting in greater costs and traffic disruption

  • 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.

  • Clearly Cheshire East are unconcerned about the blocked drains and the consequences instead they hide behind a danger to public criteria yet they choose to ignore that pedestrians are soaked by passing cars as the water pools. These blocked drains are resulting in streams of water running down the highway and in cold weather the pooling freezing resulting in hazards to vehicles and pedestrians This approach will eventual require more extensive works instead of regular maintenance, meaning a penny wise pound foolish approach will increases costs to Concil Tax payers
