Vale Road & Abbots Vale junction blocked drain

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category by Elizabeth Carine at 18:52, Saturday 16 January 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

As you turn off Vale Road into Abbots Vale there is a drain that is 100% blocked with mud. Opposite 113 Vale Road on the field side there is a drain which is 100% blocked with mud. Every time it rains there is mud all over the road, this also causes problems for those living at 67-63 Vale road, mud/silt all over road and pavement. I reported this in Feb 2020 ref 40129683. I was told a program of gully clearing would be happening in the new financial year, after April. I'm afraid nearly a year has gone by and nothing has happened. I clear up the road each time but I can't treat the root cause (which is to unblock the gully).
