Blocked drain

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 13:16, Tuesday 24 May 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3547632.

I am re-reported this issue. The drain has been blocked for months. Yesterday you replied to say it had been ‘fixed during routine inspections’. It’s not. Please see attached photos taken at 13:00 today. The location of the drain is in the gully directly outside Block 6 Devon Mansions, Tooley Street, SE1 2LB.

  • To add to the update above, the drain is still blocked despite ALREADY being ‘cleared’ by workers about two weeks ago. So it clearly has a more significant problem.
