FLOODED AREA: Councillor addresses dangerous path of road in Chalfont St Giles

 Published on: 2nd June 2021   |   By: Amneet Kaur   |   Category: Uncategorized

Chalfont St Giles (CSG) residents are glad a local politician has addressed a dangerous path of road which floods during heavy rain.

Drivers would like to see an area of the A413 near Bailey Hill Farm in Chalfont St Giles, which floods during bad weather, finally be fixed.

CSG councillor Carl Jackson recently addressed the issue.

He alerted Transport for Bucks (TfB) to the flooded area approaching a bend.

The blockage was caused by someone discharging liquid concrete into the drain and the concrete then set.

The issue should be fixed in the next few weeks.

A local resident said: “Great work Carl! I make this trip daily and it proves bothersome for many – especially for those who are unfamiliar with the road and for those driving in the dark. Great to see something is being done about this.”

Another resident asked if the councillor could help get a drainage in Narcot Lane.

Cllr Jackson replied: “Agreed. Floods every time it rains despite repeated unblocking of the drain.

“Some of the additional £4million allocated to this year’s drainage budget will be used for structural repairs and Narcot Lane is high on my list (along with Gorelands Lane).”
