Water bubbling up through tarmac at road/verge/drieway join

Reported via desktop in the Ditch issue category anonymously at 10:52, Saturday 19 March 2022

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

A very small amount of water pulsed up through a crack in the tarmac in November. Now this hole is getting larger after each heavy down pour. Thames Water have visited and said it is not their issue. The amount of water coming up is increasing each time and the hole is opening is disintegrating. Heavy/speeding traffic inc HS2 Hanson lorries is not helping.

  • Thank you for your report regarding a ditch issue, which has been passed to the Local Area Technician to investigate.

    We know that an important part of any road network is the drainage system which is designed to carry water away from the road surface. As a general rule ditches along the side of the road are the responsibility of whoever owns the land on which they are situated, they should maintain and keep the ditch capable of carrying water away from the road.

    The Local Area Technician will carry out an inspection within 10 days and if it is the responsibility of Buckinghamshire Council and a repair is required, we will carry out the work. If the responsibility is with the landowner, we will write to them and request they carry out the necessary work.

    IMPORTANT: If you consider this to be dangerous or an emergency, please call us on 0300 131 6000
    Otherwise, by submitting the report online we will deal with it in line with our agreed timescales.

    Regards
    Buckinghamshire Council
