Countywide road drainage scheme

Transport for Buckinghamshire (TfB) are continuing to deliver improvement measures aimed at sustainable, long term solutions to drainage problems identified on Buckinghamshire's road network.

Since the start of the countywide road drainage scheme, £2.4 million has been spent on improving 68 sites. A further £1 million has been allocated for 2019 to 2020.

The new drainage schemes started in April 2019.


Current works

Work has been taking place to assess known sites across the county where road surface water and ineffective drainage is an issue. The assessments help find ways of reducing, and hopefully removing the problem.  As well as more prompt removal of surface water.

TfB have also looked at dealing with ditch capacity, making sure soak ways are sufficient, installing new gully systems, and upgrading pipe sizes to increase capacity.

Work is currently being planned to take place at the following locations (updated October 2019):
