Blocked drains along Dunstable road

Reported via mobile in the Drains/Ditches Blocked category anonymously at 22:01, Friday 15 October 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 362659.

The drains are all blocked, surface water collects and runs down the road like a stream. This is a main road used by many to leave and drive to work. It is also used by pedestrian for same reasons and school drop offs and pick ups. When it rains the cars have no choice when driving along this busy road but to drive through the collected surface water and drench the pedestrians. I have had to take spare clothes into school to change my children who have got upset from being drenched from the spray, over and over walking up this road every time it rains. The drains are completely blocked making this route feel unpassable by pedestrians if you want to avoid the repeated drenches.
