  • So 3 months on and nothing has happened except the HS2 site is bigger, there are more traffic movements and the road is totally flooded today. When it was dry I inspected the drains on the road and they are all completely blocked with soil from the HS2 works. In addition the Amersham Road by the HS2 spur road lights is also flooded today, and so is Gorelands Lane once you turn left out of Chesham Lane. For residents around here this is appalling and you seem to show a total disregard for the level of flooding as soon as there is any rain. Come and look at the roads and see for yourself.
