Blocked grids cause flooding
12:42pm Thursday 27th September 2012 in Letters
HAS Warrington Borough Council ceased cleaning street grids and gulleys? Seeing grids being cleaned by a suction vehicle was a regular sight at one time, but I cannot recall the last time I saw this.
Leaving grass cuttings on mowed verges and grassed areas is a partial cause of blocked grids and the onset of autumn will only make matters worse.
Anyone walking down Padgate Lane near St Oswald’s gets soaked by water from the gutters.
There are pelican crossings throughout the town that have blocked grids adjacent to them which make it a battle of wits to press and wait or get a soaking.
Replacing one highly paid executive with one street gang might be the answer.
