A junction that floods during heavy rain is due to be investigated.

Bucks Council said it would visit the junction of Gayhurst Road and Hicks Farm Rise in High Wycombe after local Maxina Chapman highlighted flooding during recent bad weather.

Maxina said the area floods every time there is heavy downpour and recommended better drainage because ‘the drains can’t cope with two hills joining’.

Alerting locals on social media, she wrote: “Please go carful at the bottom of Gayhurst Road and Hicks Farm Rise. We have a flood. Just what you need in the roadworks too.”

She added: “This happened due to the tremendous amount of rain we had yesterday (May 31). This seems to happen every time we have a heavy downpour.

“I don’t think that the drains can cope with two hills joining. I don’t know what the solution is – better drainage.”

Deputy cabinet member for transport, Cllr Peter Martin said crews will investigate the site “as soon as possible”.

“Our crews will investigate this site as soon as possible and will be in touch with the resident to update her on our findings,” said Cllr Martin. “We investigate any reports of flooding on our highways that we receive and would urge residents to report issues via our FixMyStreet website.

“As part of a multimillion-pound investment we are carrying out a thorough programme of gully cleansing across the county which should alleviate some of the issues caused previously.

“We are committed to improving our highway networks and are working tirelessly to get to the root cause of issues in order to prevent future problems.”
