Yellow Dot, Orange Dot

We were asked by a resident recently to get a badly blocked drain sorted out in Hullbridge Road , Rayleigh. We were then asked why there was a yellow dot and an orange dot painted next to it – and a yellow dot on the other side of the road.

It was a?good question, and we now have an answer , thanks to County Councillor Michael Hoy:

… a yellow dot next to a gully or catch pit means that the asset has been cleaned this financial year, between April 2015 and March 2016, and is observed to be working as it should. An orange dot means attempted to clean but remains not working. This could be due to a blocked connection or a blocked ditch etc, which will require further investigation.”
