Significant flood making road impassable for pedestrians and cyclists

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category by Joe Kelleher at 15:44, Thu 22 October 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

For more than a year now; every time it rains this section of Gorelands Lane floods. The flood extends right across the road and for approximately 50 yards along the road. This ongoing issue needs to be fixed once and for all before Winter sets in. It always takes a number of days for the flood water to subside. Once again it has been impossible for pedestrians and cyclists to navigate this section of Gorelands Lane. There is obviously a serious issue with the drains here.
