A crossroads in Tring has been branded ‘dangerous’ by concerned residents, forcing road chiefs to look at it again following persistent flooding problems.
Rainwater often accumulates at the three-way junction between Icknield Way, Dundale Road and Little Tring Road in the form of a deep puddle, which forces motorists travelling towards Aylesbury to move over into oncoming traffic to avoid it. It is thought that the cause is of the problem is a blockage in the drainage system.
Concerned resident Rose O’Donovan – who lives nearby – wants it sorted. She said: “I’ve got a big gripe about that junction, It keeps seriously flooding and it seems like nothing is being done about it. It’s really dangerous.”
Hertfordshire’s roads are looked after by County Hall contractor Ringway, which has been made aware of the issue.
Ringway’s divisional manager Matthew Kelley said: “We are aware of the flooding issues at the junction concerned. Last November, Ringway visited the junction and cleared all gullies and ditches.
“Improvements to the drains – including the removal of tree roots which are currently hindering the flow of water at the junction– are being investigated for the most effective and efficient delivery.”
