Blocked Drain

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category by Paul Woodford, HVRA Drainage Improvement Group at 14:15, Monday 8 April 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5824176.

Road drain on left hand side as you turn into Friars Gdns directly opposite end wall of Deeters. Blocked and floods every rain fall. We were told some time back that this drain is blocked either needing jetting or has collapsed piping. Understand this problem is known about but nothing has been done to fix it - can this please be resolved.

Updates

  • This has been passed to the Highway Officer 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.

    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.
