Water leaking from pipes either from property or railway bridge

Reported via mobile in the Standing water on the highway category anonymously at 12:58, Sun 3 September 2023

Sent to Shropshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 14121812.

Water has been leaking at quite a rate for several weeks into the footpath below the railway bridge. Looks either to be a sewage outlet or other leaking pipe. It is constant, so unlikely to be the drain from the property.

  • I disagree that no further action is required. Whether the leak is your responsibility or not, the highway is your responsibility, and for around two months it has been covered with foul water, which as the weather turns colder will turn into ice. This will become a health and safety hazard.
