Road flooded due to blocked road gulleys

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 10:36, Wednesday 15 January 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

As previously reported on several occassions now the blocked drain issues still occurring outside No. 11 Oxford Av, Burnham (SL1 8HR) and adjacent property No. 14 Oxford Av. If these road drains have supposedly been jetted as part of cyclic gulley programme then this clearly hasn't fixed the issue as evident from photos. A more thorough investigation is required to determine the source of the blockage and remedy a fix.

  • Appreciate your update and hoping it will not be too long for this ongoing issue to be investigated. After over night rain the flooding issue is the now the worst I have seen in terms of the length of road impacted - see latest photos.

  • As a result of the heavy rain experienced last weekend the road gulley drainage flooding situation was still evident (see photo) with the road flooded across entire width adjacent to properties 11/14 Oxford Avenue. Not convinced that recent gulley operation clearing by council has actually fixed problem.

  • Road gulley drainage problem in Oxford Avenue still persists. It would appear that a more thorough investigation is required to determine the source of the problem as the recent council gulley cleaning operation has not fixed the problem.
