End of Highfield Road is underwater

Reported via iOS in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 20:36, Monday 8 January 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5416247.

Thank you for closing my earlier query so that I can’t make further comments. Your annual gully cleansing programme has been totally ineffective over the last 25 years. Once again the end of Highfield Road is under water and it’s supposed to be dry land. Any inspection would reveal a totally inadequate drainage infrastructure that is constantly full of silt due to poor road design. This needs fixing. Please provide the contact details for the cabinet member responsible for your safety inspection programme.

  • 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.
