Overgrown bushes covering roadsigns

Reported via desktop in the Grass cutting category anonymously at 11:13, Thursday 9 March 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4294608.

The verges are not being cut back away from the speed limit and sharp left bend signs opposite Deadhearn Lane. This means visibility of this critical information is reduced. It is noble to leave some verges wild, but right here this is proving dangerous on a hazardous stretch of road. Could the undergrowth and bushes be cut back away from the road signage please so that they do not grow up and cause problems in the spring and summer months when drivers will not be able to see them. This is already a very fast and dangerous stretch of road and this doesn't help.

  • An officer will carry out an inspection within the next 10 working days and arrange to have the issue resolved as soon as possible after that.

    We can confirm that our grass cutting programme for this year has commenced.

    Please be advised that we are unable to give specific dates for urban grass cutting. Our works programme is very weather dependant and subject to delays. We therefore ask that you remain patient should there be delays or excessive growth in-between cuts.

  • Buckinghamshire Council highway maintenance has been delivered through a partnership called Transport for Buckinghamshire for 13 years.

    From 1st April all Highways services will be delivered through a new organisational structure known as Buckinghamshire Highways. This will result in the future delivery of highways services via a new suite of contractors, operating as an alliance to better reflect the needs and priorities of our residents across the county.

    We are currently in the transition period and to ensure the highway network remains safe we will be carrying out temporary repairs on high priority defects. Permanent repairs will follow.

    We will also continue to carry out our regular highway safety inspections and should we find any issues we will apply the same rule.

    Historical reports are being transferred to the new system, and we will ensure they are revisited during the coming months.

    Thank you in advance for your patience and continued support.

    Buckinghamshire Council
