Reported via mobile in the Surface Water on the Highway category anonymously at 11:14, Sunday 19 November 2023
Sent to Rutland County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5228742.
This matter was reported some weeks ago. It still persists. Water from vehicles continues to be splashed onto our wall causing water ingress and erosion. The flooding creates a hazard for pedestrians and traffic as previously reported. The email from RCC states ‘works to rectify the defect now commenced’ but nothing has happed and it’s now reported as fixed. It needs another drain to take the water away. Other drains in Ayston need flushing and cleaning to take excess water away.

The first photo shows the condition of our wall which is dry, no surface has been splashed on to the wall. The second photo shows the condition of wall which wet. This is as a result of water being splashed on to the wall from the surface water on the road which has been present a number of weeks, and is likely to continue through the winter period for a number of months. The continual splashing of water is damaging the wall, through water ingress and erosion, this matter we understand has persisted for a number of years. Question, will Rutland County Council compensate and repair the wall should it deteriorate further. The simple solution is to clean and flush the existing drains and add a new drain where the surface water sits.
