Mineshaft drain leaking

A strategic mineshaft drain in Donnington is discharging water onto Oakengates Road in the vicinity of LEA Autos.

Mineshaft drain leaking

The ownership of this drain is unclear so the Council have shut the footpath and are planning works to unblock the drain on Friday.

As the drain runs across private property we can’t do these works straight away because we need to notify residents and businesses before we start. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us at flood@telford.gov.uk
