Drain in Kingwood Road, close to junction with Greenacres Lane

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 10:31, Wed 31 July 2019

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The drain is blocked and during heavy rainfall water flows down to the bottom of the road. It is quite possible that other drains in Kingswood Road further up the hill are similarly blocked.

    If a drain that is completely blocked right up to the top of the drain doesn't meet the criteria, perhaps it's time to change the criteria?

  • ..... and just to add that following today's torrential rain, there was literally a river flowing down the bottom of Kingswood Road (flowing over the drains, down our drive and into our garage). I know the rain would probably have been too much for the drains to take, but to have virtually no drains taking any water away from the flow is dreadful.
