Mud on road

Reported via mobile in the Cleaning/Sweeping category by Ray Belchamber at 19:42, Monday 20 March 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council 3 weeks, 2 days, 19 hours, 2 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 4337429.

A site on this road is leaving large volumes of mud on the road as its vehicle leave the size making the road slippery at a local that is likely to be hazardous to other road users. This is in violation of Highways Act 1980 Section 161 The site owner is making no effort to reduce or minimise this hazard or attempt to clear it This has been reported before but ether nothing has been done about it or the owner has ignored any communication with the authority's. This is clearly an illegal commercial breakers yard that has probably already contaminated the site beyond repair but is now being used as a cement distributor site with tipper lorries and cement lorries continously entering and existing making the problem of mud on the road worse. The lack of action of the local authority, despite the clear volume of complaints and clear disregard of the rules and law makes one wonder what deals or corruption is involved. Let's see some action on this

  • This has been passed to the local area technician to investigate the enquiry/issue regarding a pothole/road surface.

    During winter months we receive a very high number of reports regarding potholes or a poor road surface, it's easy to assume that potholes are formed due to roads being poorly maintained but that is not usually the case. There are many factors that can cause potholes, particularly during the winter months when water seeps in through cracks in the road surface, collecting underneath and when the water freezes, it expands and forces up the road surface in through cracks in the road surface.

    Our priority is always the safety of road users, so in some cases during busy periods a permanent repair is not always possible immediately. However, temporary repairs are a way to ensure the area is safe until such times as we can return to make a permanent repair.
