Another choked drain at Dorset Road between Owen & Durham Roads (see update 5 Aug above)

This photo was taken at 6.24 pm today, 1 August 2005 along Dorset Road. It seems most if not all the public drains (at least the uncovered ones) are choked with fallen leaves and/or debris, a by-product of our garden city aspirations and litterbugs. One wonders why this happens almost without fail at all the public drains. Then it dawned on me that maybe it's the way the drains are designed as they are almost level - they are not inclined enough to improve drainage; if only they had more gradient, the problem might not be as widespread. Then again, perhaps it's easier to just cover these drains up!
