Regular flooding of road

Reported via iOS in the Flooding on a road/footpath category anonymously at 11:35, Friday 9 February 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5553252.

Road continues to flood on a regular basis. Further channels need to be dug through the earthen bank to allow water to drain into surrounding fields. The photo shows the road after waters have substantially receded; their purpose is to show the low point and position where a channel needs to be dug. This should be a simple operation of digging through the shallow earth bank

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.
