Junction of Langdon Ave and Camborne Ave

Reported via desktop in the Flooding on a road/footpath category anonymously at 16:08, Monday 26 February 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5634319.

Rod gully on north side of Camborne Ave. Water issuing out of gully. Suspect Thames Water may be the source. But why is the water being forced out of the gully? This suggests that the carrier drain is also blocked?

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.
