This culvert is behind the bus stop at the bottom of Cryers Hill, on the field side of the road. The culvert is partly obscured by the hedge.

Reported via desktop in the Ditch issue category by Paul Woodford at 09:33, Thursday 17 March 2022

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The photo shows this to be a concrete edged culvert which appears to drain water from the other side of the road. Neighbours have reported that during heavy rain, water is puddling up in the centre of the road. The exit to the culvert is blocked and also impeded by a birch tree adjacent to it.

  • 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
