Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5986145.

Two blocked surface drains that have been blocked for months, this area continues to flood when it rains. This was reported previously but the report was closed saying it’s part of the annual maintenance regime. This wasn’t helpful as it is still blocked and flooding.

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.
