Crossing on london road just past Chestnut Avenue

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 11:14, Mon 16 December 2019

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Have photos on mob phone don't know how to get them here. In ten years only flooded 3/4 times this year flooded five times including last night 15/16 dec. with traffic pushing the flooding over the path it floods down towards properties at Edgewood including helping to flood the garages(twice badly) this year. You have spent ages dealing with the crossing and new lights but you have not bothered about the road and the flooding which takes place there it is not good enough, if we keep getting heavy rain it will get worse. The road traffic is both way and has three lanes it is down to one in the middle when flooded unless two push past and make the wave over the path even bigger. The wave when deep will go right up to the bus stop at Chestnut Ave.
