  • Well this is patent nonsense. If you look INTO the drain cover you can see that the drain itself is completely blocked with thick black sludge. As are many of the other drains along the road. And EVERY TIME IT RAINS THESE ROADS AND PAVEMENTS NOW FLOOD.

    Whoever did this inspection completely failed to do their job properly or consider the drainage system as a whole.

    Come back and fix it.

  • The gulley in question was cleared of the detritus caught within the frame of the gulley.
