Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 10:35, Thu 8 June 2023
Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4646114.
Opposite church lane corner of Farthing green lane blocked drainage reported several times over the last year, but still to date no action taken the vehicles drag dirt due to no proper kerb closer to the footpath and road therefore cars drive and park at corner dragging the dirt and blocking the drain an on going issue. Need urgent response.
This has been passed to the Local Area Technician to investigate.
We know that an important part of any road network is the drainage system which is designed to carry water away from the road surface. Even when a gully is clean and well maintained it will only cope with a certain volume of water at one time, a sudden and heavy downpour can still cause flooding especially if the road is in a low lying area.
