Affinity sorted out the leak but haven’t completed the repair

Reported via iOS in the Road surface category anonymously at 07:17, Tuesday 23 May 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4585239.

Affinity Water attended promptly on Thursday 18th May to stop this leak but have left the road closed since then.

Their permit says 2 hours.

There are no diversions in place as there should be to shut this road between Hazlemere and Beaconsfield as it was an emergency - 5 days ago.

Now that the leak has been fixed some drivers are forcing their way through on the pavement. This could be fixed in an hour but has possibly been forgotten.

  • 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 creates 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.
