Follow Up To 18th July Storm

The road flooding of 18th July was reported to Transport for Bucks (thanks to Debs Lemon) which resulted in a visit by James to investigate. Apart from a single partially silted up inspection chamber, the road drains were essentially found to be in good order, and it was clear that the massive downpour simply overwhelmed the system.


An order has been raised to clear the gullies, really as a precautionary measure. It was mentioned that TFB are fully aware of the problems with this stretch of the road and that it may be the subject of a future capital scheme.


We had also raised an enquiry about the blockage of the pipe down by the pumping station. James inspected this on his visit but did not consider the weeds or fencing across the pipe as requiring attention.
