Friday 1 march. Left hand land approaching A road flooded

Reported via Android in the Flooding on a road/footpath category anonymously at 07:19, Friday 1 March 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5651705.

Friday 1 March after Heavy Rain the left hand lane of Four Ashes is flooded to centre of road after heavy rain just prior to the junction with the A road. There is a drain to the left hand side which is covered by at least 10 to 15 cm of water suggesting the drain is blocked and this is therefore causing the flooding on the roadway. Precious reports appear to have been dismissed despite this being a persistent issue at this location over the last few weeks

  • 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.
