Drain near the junction of Downfield and Beaconsfield Road

Reported via desktop in the Gully/Drainage category anonymously at 08:58, Wed 28 October 2020

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

There is a foul smell in our house at No 10 Beaconsfield every time there are heavy rains - at the same time the drain at the junction of Downfield and Beaconsfield Road is continually blocking and flooding the road. This is becoming a sanitary hazard and needs resolving. I notice that there have been many previous complaints. Please would you unblock the drain rather than simply clearing the floodwater.

  • I am told by neighbours, and I note from all the emails about this on this website, that this problem has persisted for several years. This isn't acceptable and I sincerely hope that action will be taken to clear the drain of the blockage, even though we appreciate that this will be a significant job. The builders who poured concrete down the drain, causing the problem, should be held to account assuming you could ever find them. We will wait to hear from you in the hope that this is now being taken seriously.
