Flooding on Princess avenue

Reported via mobile in the Surface Water on the Highway category anonymously at 14:45, Sat 24 December 2022

Sent to Rutland County Council less than a minute later

The flooding on princess avenue near the abandoned garages is still happening, having been reported many times it seems a permanent fix to the problem is no longer a council concern.

  • I've raised this with my ward Councillor and he has raised it with Rutland County Council on why nothing appears to have been done. So should hear back in the next 5 days. I have noticed today that there is flooding on Station Road but there is "Flood" notices been put out on the road to warn drivers.

  • The flooding issue at Princess Avenue is a known problem. Several factors determine how highways react to flooding on the highway. It has been noted that excess surface water does drain away slowly following rainfall ceasing, does not prevent pedestrian or vehicle access, is an estate road location and properties are not being flooded. Therefore, this has not been treated as a priority for these reasons. However, the issue has been logged for further day work investigations. Rutland County Council does not have access to a gully (storm drain) cleansing machine at all times and this has to be booked in specially. Detailed investigative works are due to happen in February 2023 following an initial investigation that took place on the 9th November 2022 which determined specialist equipment was required to further investigate the problem. If this specialist investigation shows that there is a more significant issue, a programme of works will need to be put together to repair or improve the system. Therefore, at this time, highways are unable to provide a timescale for the rectification of the problem.

  • Flooding on princess avenue has now frozen and is now an ice ring .someone is going to get hurt because you refuse to accept a problem. The person who stated it is not a problem obviously doesn't live in oakham.

  • Noticed the same this morning. Plus as cars drove through the water before it froze it has put a layer of water onto Cold Overton Road and down Princess Avenue which has created an addition hazard. It is Rutland County Council that has decided that this a low priority as stated in the update from 12 Jan 23.

  • With freezing tempatures forecast for this week, w/c Mon 16 Jan 2023, this matter now presents a significant risk to all users of this junction due to the formation of sheet ice on the road surface and the adjacent pedestrian walkways. pl;ease get this remedied before anyone is injured.
