Drain outside 54 Dunstable Road

Reported via desktop in the Drains/Ditches Blocked category anonymously at 16:07, Tuesday 17 August 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 360615.

Something has been poured from a van into the drain outside 54 Dunstable Road. The black liquid that was being poured has now spilt all-over the pavement and also on to the drive of the property and has a very horrible smell. Unsure whether who poured it was authorised or not

  • Thank you for your Highways report.
    We have inspected the area but were unable to find the issue you reported at the location provided in your report. There is no road gully situated outside 54 and nearest is next to 48 which is clear and there is no sign of contamination.
    Once video footage recieved, we will ensure this is passed to Enviromental to follow up

    Many thanks,
    Central Bedfordshire Council Highways
