Looks like someone at Yorkshire Water took a reality check towards personal liability being shoved up them. The results for today’s emergency investigations significantly add to the jigsaw that should finally reveal that “YES” the drains in Station Lane are useless and are causing un-told damage.  A predicted disaster OR a significant opening to regenerate Featherstone if you’re not wearing Political blinkers.
You’re going to love this. Investigations on George and Fearnly Street confirm 85% silt blockage probably caused from back pressure off Wakefield Road. Just over a tonne of silt has been removed from George Street. A camera inspection then revealed that the drain was running towards St Thomas School and ended in a pile of rubble. It appears the drain at least on George Street many years ago was bodged on to Station Lanes main drain. See if you can follow this plot. At least 2 side street drains appear to have been cut off from where they were originally meant to feed too. Why would this be? Would it have anything to do with a missing street and a new school built? It appears someone cheated and didn’t re-lay the drains. This explains many things like puddles behind the precinct and flooding cellars.

It gets worse. After clearing George Street a camera was able to be placed in to Station Lanes main drain. Again the main drain is undersize and about 85% blocked. Remarkably it appears the only reason the drain is not 100% blocked is because of help from rats using the drain as their own road and food source. Estimates predict that at least the first 50 metres of Station lane will contain about 10 tonnes of silt. As usual not a word from local cllrs! Roll Eyes
