Blocked drain on West side of Valley Rd opposite Surgery

Reported via desktop in the Cleaning/Sweeping category by Paul Woodford, HVRA Drainage Improvement Group at 13:56, Monday 29 January 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council 1 week, 20 hours, 24 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 5505802.

Drain completely blocked. I have done a walk checking drains along Valley Rd and into Warrendene Rd. The majority of drains are either blocked or have the drain tops covered in leaves. twigs etc. It is evident that the edges of the roads on both sides are full of leaves, twigs and soil and require sweeping throughout the Valley. Could a substantial drain clearing and road sweeping operation be set up for all of Hughenden Valley at the earliest opportunity? Thanks

  • 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.
