Chesham residents – please keep clear for gully cleaning in Waterside next week!

From Tuesday 5th to Wednesday 6th September, Transport for Buckinghamshire will be cleaning every gully and pipe along a 1.3 mile stretch in Waterside, Chesham. Drivers are asked to avoid parking along the stretch from the roundabout at Red Lion Street down to Mill Close so the gullies are accessible for the cleaning machinery. 

The road will remain open but there will be some traffic management in place to allow the cleaning crew to carry out the work safely, so there may be some delays in the area between 9am and 3.30pm on both days. Around 40 gullies will be cleaned in total – this is essential maintenance ahead of the winter as it will reduce the risk of localised flooding, decreasing the chance of ice and limiting damage to the road surface thus prolonging its life. 

TfB thanks residents and businesses for their cooperation and patience while this work is carried out.
