Blocked drain, damaged kerbs , failed road surface - The Vale

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category by Neil Burn-Tilbury at 11:11, Fri 27 October 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5143731.

Missing and damaged kerbs, failed road surface(The Vale) and a totally blocked drain on The Vale is causing water damage to the entrance to Ramscote Lane. The loose surface of Ramscote Lane is being washed into The Vale which is dangerous for motorists and pedestrians. The entrance from The Vale into Ramscote Lane is dangerous for vehicles and almost in accessible .This was previously reported and notification that work was being booked was communicated. Since we have been told Ramscote Lane is private land which it is not? So no repairs will be completed ?. The issue is being caused by badly needed repairs on The Vale which is a busy public highway. Photographs attached clearly show issues.

  • 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.
