Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Highway surface water drainage system of insufficient capacity, at low point in road, to handle todays downpour, water coming from east and west to low point. Resulting in surface water running down driveway to 29, water level at front door threshold level, also entering garage of 29. This issue has been reported on numerous occassions yet the highway surface water drain capacity has not been addressed. Given repetition of flooding at this location please confirm when works will commence to eliminate risk of flooding from surface water escaping highway drainage systems.
