Two blocked drains in slip road Hollybush Lane

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4720732.
Both drains in the slip road at top of Hollybush Lane between Toby Inn and the start of Skylark Road have been blocked for several years. This prevents residents being able to access their cars and causes issues for parents with young children who need to be safely put into car seats.
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.
