Sewage on Sainsburys carpark

Reported via mobile in the Other Highways issue category anonymously at 14:01, Mon 29 August 2022

Sent to Shropshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 14095458.

Human waste spilling over carpark in Sainsburys Bridgnorth. Has been like it for a while. Have reported to Sainsburys too but nothing has been done. Not pleasant for customers approaching the store to smell urine.

  • Member of the public walked through raw sewage leaking from sainsburys - again - kids dogs prams wheelchairs elderly are obliviously walking through it - in turn getting into their cars and walking it through sainsburys store. It is disgusting. The urine smell is very pungent - why hasn’t this been fixed - it’s creating really bad pot holes that you can’t push a trolley over and I’m paying to park - sort it out council, has covid not taught us anything. Sainsburys have been called along with Severn Trent but you’re all jobs worths so nothing gets done….

  • Many complaints today about raw sewage flowing along sainsburys bridgnorths carpark again, ongoing (literally years at this point) "its not our problem" its the council / severn trent / sainsburys, but no-ones taking action. Its right outside the store by the zebra crossing and being walked in. Its disgusting, smells, school children, elderley, mums with pushchairs and toddlers walking through it to get into the shop. This cannot be hygienic and should surely be addressed. The papers will be the next place I shall be complaint to.

  • The problem is worse than ever, now running into the road and is being carried into the shop, surely this is a health hazard, Sainsbury should close until this disgusting problem is solved properly.

  • Just contacted Sainsbury's complaints number and the operator was obviously not aware of the problem. As previous posts have pointed out the problem has never been addressed properly. It has reared it's head for many years and the smell in the gents toilets is always there. I would agree that the store should be closed until the issue with the drains is sorted. The health and safety ex3cutive should become involved. It was interesting to see Bridgnorth Councils attitude to the problem. (It's not our problem) Surprising when you see that they have had to repair the tarmac where the overflowing sewage has gradually eroded the tarmac.
