Completely full of mud

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 13:09, Mon 10 February 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

This drain has been blocked since September last year and now all the water is coming down the length of Elm Lane onto the Marlow Road which means that people cannot cross Elm Lane without walking onto the Marlow Road and secondly anyone walking along the Marlow Road gets completely soaked from the spray of the water as cars drive along the Marlow Road.

  • This problem has not been fixed since September 2019 despite a number of calls to Bucks County Council. I would like to put on record that should a child fall and break a leg or any other limb outside our house or by the drain the responsibility lays solely at the feet of Bucks County Council.
