River Twyver Culvert

Reported via mobile in the The drain is blocked category anonymously at 07:07, Monday 6 May 2024

Sent to Gloucestershire County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5936156.

The culvert is full of rubbish and vegetation. It is blocking the flow and also affecting the eels and wildlife that use this river.

Council are supposed to maintain this area. It is always shambles and looks even more awful because the shrubs neighbour a flat which is maintained by a local contractor so he cuts the part he is paid to do and leaves the part the council is supposed to maintain. As you can imagine, the council maintained section is an eyesore and a risk to pedestrians due to brambles and animals. Residents have taken pictures to highlight the difference.

  • Thank you for reporting a drainage or flooding issue.

    We will investigate the issue. If additional clearance work is needed, the local highways team will prioritise the most urgent reports. Where possible, maintenance tasks will be grouped together in a schedule for efficiency.

    Sometimes during periods of heavy rain, even a clear gully can be overwhelmed. Usually the water will drain away within an hour.

    Every gully or drain the county council is responsible for is cleared at least once each year. Some drains in problem areas are cleared more frequently. You can find out more, including the gully emptying schedule on our website by visiting
