Berkhampstead Road and Broad Street

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 12:13, Thursday 14 January 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The drains, plural, in Berkhampstead Road and Broad Street are blocked and large pools of water have formed at various places in the gullies. This makes it hazardous to use the pavements for fear of beimng splashed by passing vehicles. This is a regular occurance and the proffesed gully cleaning doesn't seem to make much difference. I know that work has been done in this location in the past but a succession of resurfacing attempts seem to have left some drains sitting as "islands" proud of the pools of water that surround them, other drains simply do not drain the water away. You need to visit this area on a rainy day to see the problem first hand.
