Pound Lane roundabout near Wethered Park

Reported via desktop in the Flooding on a road/footpath category anonymously at 13:56, Thursday 8 February 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5548937.

Once more after moderate rain for only a few hours the road is flooded across both carriageways and on the pavement. Gullies are still full of sewage from the problem reported in January. Nothing has been done since. I understand that the sewers are no longer overwhelmed and the problem can be remedied by emptying the near full gully pots. Please help!

Updates

  • If the flooding is caused by a water leak we will report it to the relevant water company, who are responsible for water leaks.

    There are occasions when flash flooding overloads the drain/gully, even when a drain/gully is clean and well maintained it can 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, this generally clears away over a matter of hours.

    The Highway Officer is only able to inspect the drain when the water has cleared away, this will be done within 10 days and if required, an order will be raised to clear the drain.
