Oat Close, Bridlepath bridge crossing

Reported in the Blocked drain category by Chris Wheatley BSc FIOT FSCCT LMPA LBIPP at 08:23, Thu 20 September 2018

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Stream is blocked by logs thrown back in and the entire rotten wooden safety barrier from Oat Close.

Exposed 4" nails a safety hazard, down stream is currently blocked awaiting rainfall to proceed to block Oxford Road crossing.

Workmen need to remove cut tree trunks so 'yooths' can't throw them back in gain. Obvious ?

  • Despite the safety barrier being on the actual land and the stream affecting a whole estate flooded two years ago by blockage, the Bucks Council will do nothing useful to avert the disaster. The part blocked is on housing land, yet BCC claim its up to the owner!

    What owner? This is a rate payers housing area.

    State changed to: Open
