Two drivers had a near miss this morning as they attempted to drive through a flooded road in Prestwood.

Frustrated residents say the “dangerous” flooding in Honor End Lane was reported to Bucks County Council over a month ago, however a Transport for Bucks (TfB) team has only just turned up at the site to drain the area.

The clip, filmed by Prestwood resident Bob Scott, shows two cars approaching the flooded area, then skim past each other at close proximity.

Mr Scott took to Twitter this week to post the video and photos of the flooded stretch, and called for the council to “listen” to residents’ concerns, adding he is “losing patience” over the issue.

Speaking to the Bucks Free Press, he said: “I am most concerned that I first complained about a month ago and nothing has happened. I just don’t understand why it has taken them so long to come and do something about it.

“It’s a traffic hazard. Every time it floods, there’s no street lights down here, so you don’t see the flood until your car is moving through it, and then the drivers put the anchor down because they can feel something is not right.

“Cars drive along this road far too quickly. There have been five accidents on this road since we lived here – not because of the floods, but it is a dangerous road.”

Residents are urged to report road defects online via BCC’s Fix My Street website, however Mr Scott raised concerns the system does not work effectively.

He said: “My main concern is the Fix my Street process clearly isn’t working. I put a complaint in with photos, and have been updating it since but nothing happened. It’s ridiculous.”

In an email sent to residents on December 5, network delivery manager at Transport for Bucks, David Stewart, agreed the flooded road appeared to be a “significant hazard” and required “immediate attention”.

He added a TfB inspector visited the road after the issue was raised on Fix My Street, however no action was taken at the time as the water levels had dropped, so the issue did not appear to need urgent attention.

The email stated: “I have investigated the apparent lack of action following Fix My Street report sent. Evidence shows that a visit was undertaken and instruction raised.

“However as water levels had dropped the inspector did not appreciate the potential significance of the problem and therefore classified the action, incorrectly, as less urgent than it actually is. I apologise for this oversight on the part of the inspector.”

BCC has been contacted for further comment.
