Work is starting on Tuesday (10-3-2020) to clear the trees and vegetation to the side of Cooks Wharf canal bridge. Once this work is complete (hopefully by Wednesday 11-3-2020) BCC TfB will be able to see what sort of excavator can squeeze in there to get the ditch cleared.
The ditch clearance will not follow immediately after but should take place within the next 2 weeks. Once the ditch is cleared the back-up of water should flow out the system and the flood should recede.
More road closed signage has been erected to help prevent vehicles turning round in the drive of properties before the bridge.
Works had been delayed as high priority works were required on the A413 Buckingham Road, Weedon where severe flooding was causing vehicles to aquaplane off the carriageway, which we are sure residents will understand needed to be remedied as the priority.
