Blocked drain causing flooded road. One lane blocked

Reported via Android in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 21:26, Fri 20 October 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5120813.

On the western side of the corner of Long Bottom Lane and Bottom Lane, the drain is blocked. The flood is now covering an entire lane on Bottom Lane, and is 8" deep. It is not draining despite the rain stopping. The drain is blocked underneath the road. I tried to loosen it with a crowbar and spade but it won't drain. It needs proper equipment.

  • 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.
