Dear Mr Clark

 

I am writing to confirm that we have now completed our search for the
information, which you requested on 9 May 2021.

 

A copy of the information is below.

 

Can you please advise number of complaints received in last 3 years in
relation to flooding on the M66?

 

9 complaints received

Can you please advise of any works carried out in same period to address
issues with flooding and any future plans?.

The drainage assets on the M66 are maintained annually. Additional work is
undertaken when required to remove any blockages restricting flow, sweep
channels or empty gullies to ensure free flow of water through the
drainage system.

 

M66 junction 0 and Edenwood viaduct northbound and southbound

In March 2018 we completed gully and pipework repairs.

 

M66 junction 2 near Gorsey Fold southbound

In March 2018 we renewed the filter drain.

 

M66 mainline between junctions 3 and 4 (near Hills Lane) southbound

In November 2018 we de-silted the drains and carried out gully and
pipework repairs.

 

M66 junction 2 southbound access slip

In March 2020 we removed the overburden from the channel and de-silted the
drains.

 

M66 mainline between junctions 3 and 4 (near Hollins Vale / Aviation Road)
northbound and southbound

In March 2020 we added additional gullies and pipework to increase the
capacity of the drainage.

 

 

We have undertaken a series of investigations, including 30 drainage
surveys along the M66, and plan to start work in September 2021 at
various locations along the M66 on a project to improve the efficiency of
the drainage, these are outlined below. The work will last for two to
three months.    

 

M66 mainline at junction 0 northbound

These works include increasing the capacity of the existing surface water
drainage channels, installing new ones and providing additional gullies to
increase the storage capacity in the system.

 

M66 mainline between junctions 0 and 1 southbound

These works are to repair cracked drainage pipes. This will address an
issue affecting Lanes 1 and 2.

 

M66 mainline at junction 1 southbound

These works involve replacing a 720m length of drainage that has reached
the end of its serviceable life.  They will prevent surface water run-off
from the adjacent land reaching the southbound carriageway. 

 

M66 mainline between junctions 1 and 2 southbound

These works involve replacing a 300m length of drainage that has reached
the end of its serviceable life.

 

M66 mainline at junction 2 north and southbound

These works involve replacing a 230m length of drainage that has reached
the end of its serviceable life.  Additional drainage gullies will be
installed to increase the storage capacity in the system.

 

 

We have the following schemes in development relating to drainage on the
M66. A date for when this work will take place has not yet been
determined.

 

M66 mainline Peel Brow to Park Brook northbound and southbound

Scheme in development looking at possible design/capacity issues

 

M66 mainline between junction 0 and 1 (near Hinchliffe Transport Services)
southbound

Scheme in development to restore top of batter drainage

 

M66 mainline between junction 3 and M60 junction 18 near to Roe Bank
Subway northbound

Newly identified issue relating to drainage
