Boss Lane, Hughenden Valley.

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 14:11, Tuesday 14 May 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5972322.

The main sewer is damaged and needs to be repaired. For the past six weeks possibly longer tankers have been pumping out sewerage from the sewer. The tanker arrives at approximately 7am and will return probably 5 times a day sometimes into the early hours. I have been advised by Thames water that they are waiting for permit approval from BCC so they can dig up the road to repair the sewer. The tankers will continue to empty the sewer until work starts. The situation is unacceptable and should be resolved as soon as possible. I am currently talking to someone from roads for current update of the permit application. I have been advised that Thames Water have not submitted the permit application. I will contact Thames Water regarding the situation. Spoken to Kodi.

  • 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.
