  • This problem is still there and has been for at least two months. I have been away since September and have returned October. There is water running out from the Drain just by the One Stop Shop in Swinnyford Road it must be a problem and needs sorting.

  • I have noticed that this Blocked Drain is still there. Its an important area as the water flows down and around the corner by the shops. This has been a problem for many months and with Winter on its was the problem can only get worse. Please check and resolve urgently.

  • Well I reported this several times and nothing seems to have been done. Water is running from the drains opposite the One Stop Shop in Buckingham way Towcester. I am advising you that the problem is getting worse and with the weather getting colder the accumulation of water on the street corner, there is a possibility of dangerous ICE. I suggest that you resolve this Urgently before there is an accident.

  • I really dont know what you doing about this problem but it seems nothing. As I have said with the weather now getting colder and the risk of Frost there is a potential of a seriuos accident caused by ICE. You really should get this sorted.

  • Well I am getting reports that the drain is blocked. Your man was here today 12th but it's still running. I think you should at least have a go at telling us what the problem is. As I said it's an accident waiting to happen.

  • Hi there. I know one of your team was on site yesterday 12th November but nothing really has been done. I have said there is a risk if this water freezes. I have told you of this so many times. Do I need to report to the SNC or maybe County Council or can we expect some action.

  • I saw that someone was working on these drains on Sunday. However whatever they did, it did not work and the problem persists.
