The blocked gully is located at the bottom of Trees Road and floods the pavement with silt and stones, and creates big puddles in Valley Road.

Reported in the Flooded subway category anonymously at 17:10, Thursday 17 October 2019

Received by Buckinghamshire County Council moments later

The concrete gully that lies across the full width of the bottom of Trees Road has small circular holes in it like a kitchen calendar which get blocked with stones that roll down the unmade surface of Trees Road. When there is heavy rain lots more stones and silt get carried forward and finally become deposited on the pavement and in Valley Road. This in turn blocks the drains in Valley Road and flooding occurs. Pedestrians complain because they get wet/splashed when vehicles drive past. The area is dangerous for wheelchair users because the road and pavement surface is unstable and their wheelchairs could tip over whilst trying to avoid the mess. This has been a continued problem over many years and residents who walk up and down Valley Road are fed up with the problem.
