Storm drain outside 16 Fairfax Crescent

Reported via mobile in the Blocked drain category by Lisa Spinks at 16:54, Wednesday

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5978399.

Storm drain full to the top outside Number 16 and drain outside number 10 empty. Clearly a blockage as water is breaking its way through the road. Thames Water took samples and said it’s untreated water so to contact the council as it’s a blockage. Caused huge pothole. I have contacted my local councillor regarding this issue as Thames Water says it’s not their problem and I received an email yesterday from yourselves saying it’s not yours. Can someone come out and drain the water from the storm drain to help elevate this problem

  • 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.
