Several partially blocked drains along north side of Homerton High street after road resurfacing

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 18:28, Friday 23 September 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3844700.

I reported this soon after the road resurfacing in August and have received an email to say it has been attended to. However as far as I can see there has been nothing done at all. Several of the drains still contain large lumps of gravel and tar, and some still have silvery sort of tape over parts of the tops of the drains. Mainly the stretch from Furrow Lane as far as outside Bannister House on the north side of the road. If this doesn't matter please let me know! But if it is an issue for road drainage and possible flooding, as I suspect it is, please sort it out thanks Judith Main
