Road now causing flooding

Reported in the Road surface category anonymously at 12:15, Friday 14 August 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

We are the Garage opposite lodge lane. Since the new houses were built, the road surface has been damaged. This was caused by weight of the large lorries and with the road having been dug up for varies utilities. When the houses were built no drainage was installed to allow for the rain water coming down Lodge Lane. Now the water runs straight across the road (which it never did before) and comes straight down into our yard and floods our workshop. As you can appreciate the amount of water we have had lately has caused a lot of problems and a lot of damage. Our workshop has flooded today with just 10 minutes of rainfall. This is an urgent request for something to be sorted with the road and drainage as we cannot cope with this amount of water.
