Underneath railway bridge on A404

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 17:30, Tue 27 November 2018

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

There is a blocked drain underneath the railway bridge that is causing a large puddle to form. Pedestrians using the pavement get soaked every time a vehicle goes past.There is another blocked drain on the road leading to the station carpark and the overflow from that is making the problem worse. Please could someone have a look at it and try to rectify the problem.

  • This is still an issue and when it rains it almost impossible to pass along the footpath safely without getting sprayed and soaked by passing vehicles. Given it is a busy route for children going to school and others going to the station or shops I would have thought it was a priority?
