54 Amersham Road, c st Peter

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 17:36, Tue 4 July 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4749718.

The gully is blocked again, it was fixed on 31 May, but something is clearly wrong and it’s blocked again. This is a very dangerous situation so please can it be looked at again. I had to write to my MP to get a resolution the last time and am happy to do this again if the request is denied. Years ago a culvert was dug on the other side of the road, perhaps this is blocked. PLEASE could this be looked at urgently as once again out property is being sprayed with rainwater, the verges are washing away making the situation worse again. Thank you

  • 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.
