Gulley Cleaning

We respond to flooding incidents and help prevent disruptions to the public road.

Road and Highway Gullies

Road and highway gullies are different in that they are often concealed with a metal grate and are designed to eliminate standing, or excess water and to retain any debris-such as litter, mud, leaves and silts, to prevent them from entering the drainage system causing pipe blockages and flooding. The water that is collected is then discharged into drains, ditches, or sewers. In this way, gullies play an important role in ensuring that our roads are safe to drive on and are not covered in surface water after a heavy downpour.

If the road or highway gully becomes blocked and water is allowed to accumulate, it can result in unpleasant odours, and the risk of cars aquaplaning, making it potentially dangerous for both drivers and passengers. Additionally, excess water on the roads leads to greater braking and stopping distances for lorries and cars and can make it difficult for pedestrians to negotiate. In the worst-case scenario, a flooded road can become impassable and consequently closed.

The Importance of Road and Highway Gully Maintenance

With climate change, the risk of flooding is increasing with every year that passes and with record levels of rainfall, the need for cleaning and maintaining road and highway gullies has become ever more important.

For nearly ten years one of the country’s leading drainage companies, RWB Group, has been helping local authorities and companies working on the roads to make sure that road and highway gullies are always in good working order.

As a major player in the drainage and wastewater management sector, RWB Group is ideally placed to cope with road and highway flooding incidents, using state of the art technology to clean blocked gullies and minimise any disruption.

Keeping the public and private roads safe and functioning correctly is our top priority.

In order to avoid the possibilities of disruption to roads and highways due to gully problems, local highway authorities have a duty to keep roadside gullies clear and in good working order. These gullies need to be regularly cleaned and cleared of any leaves, debris or silt in order to reduce the potential of flooding, particularly after heavy rainfall.

When gullies are blocked, they become significant problems that can affect properties and public roads. This is when it becomes a public safety risk when there are flooding hazards.
