Gutter flooding between bridges, causing pavement to be unpassable.

Reported via mobile in the Footpath / pavement problem category anonymously at 21:12, Wednesday 17 April 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5867597.

The entire gutter between the northern bridge and the old Sumitomo site (about 40m) is constantly flooded, causing the pavement and footpath to be unpassable because of splash and spray from passing vehicles. Bicycles cannot use the road because of this, and I cannot use the footpath to take my infant daughter to nursery - I am forced to drive. Given this is the only walking route into town, it’s unacceptable that the pathway is unusable.
