Outside 30 Neville Close, SL2 4AQ

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 23:39, Friday 18 September 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Blocked drain causing road to flood for days when it rains has been reported several times and has recently been shown as fixed. IT HAS NOT BEEN FIXED and the workmen attending 16/09/2020 have stated it needs a bigger machine to fix the issue which is the drain blocked by tree roots. We have previously been told the drain has COLLAPSED underneath the road surface so why are Bucks Council showing this as a FIXED issue. In addition, the drain further along the run has been sprayed with white pain initials CP which also shows it is still an ongoing situation. Not impressed at Bucks Council trying to close reported issues that clearly are NOT fixed. Looking forward to a response.

  • So Bucks Council, as you say in a response in September, the 'repair is now complete' (ref: 40140624) Well, I beg to differ. In fact, even looking into the drains before this rain, they are full of silt. How do you expect them to let the surface water flow away?
