Back to all reports

Can I please report a rain water drain that has been fully blocked for months (please see photos), and is exacerbating flooding on the A404 under the railway bridge. Also, you have to be careful when passing, to avoid a soaking from cars going up to the station carpark

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 16:23, Tuesday 14 September 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

As per picture 2, the drain is at the bottom of Chalfont Avenue and the junction of the northerly station approach (south going trains), where they abut the A404. The water sweeps down Chalfont Avenue and the station approach, pooling and going in a steady stream across the pavement and considerably adding to the build-up of water under the bridge. Particularly if rainfall is heavy! This needs to be totally cleared as a matter of urgency, with a gully sucker please. Otherwise there will be more flooding under the A404 bridge As you will see from photo 1, it is completely blocked and a confluence for a large are of waste water!

With thanks
