Junction of Red Lion Hill / Swan Bottom HP16 9NG

Reported in the Blocked drain category by Colin Sully at 17:32, Thursday 16 January 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Blocked drains (and blocked sumps) on both sides of the road leading to constant flooding; width restriction and surface degrading - multiple potholes. A sign has been put up today saying "Road surface failure" - but that's only the symptom. The real problem is a lack of proper drainage along Chesham Lane; a lack of gulley maintenance and lack of road sweeping.
