Where the stream crosses under the road between Welsh Lane and the gates to Stowe School

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category by Alec Howard at 09:55, Friday 3 September 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

There is a spring at this location from which water runs down either side of the road and puddles on top of the bridge. in the winter this gets very icy. A couple of years ago drains were built to allow the water to run off the road into the stream but these have never been cleaned out and are blocked. A channel was also dug near the spring to take the water away from the road but this is clearly blocked too. All of the infrastructure is there, it just needs a couple of hours work to unblock everything as it worked brilliantly when the drainage work was completed.
