Blocked drain

Reported via mobile in the Blocked rainwater gulleys category anonymously at 08:41, Wednesday 9 August 2023

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 4872954.

The drain outside Bexley Garage is blocked, for approximately a year. When there is a deluge that causes water in the road, the water does not flow away and creates a large puddle. When cars relentlessly drive by, they push/splash the water down the slope into the garage and into the MOT bay, causing standing water, that has to be pumped out. This is a danger to the mechanics standing there
