Road blocked - one has to drive off road to get past.

Reported via desktop in the Road surface category anonymously at 19:04, Thu 25 May 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council 4 days, 16 hours, 24 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 4597321.

Large pile of garden waste dumped in road. Council should post on social media as it must come from someone’s garden and whoever was presumably paid to remove it should have taken to a proper tip. Unbelievable behaviour.

  • This has been passed to our Highways Team, who will carry out an inspection and arrange for the appropriate action to be taken.

    Our priority is clearing the obstruction on the public highway to make it safe, this may mean that the fly tip is moved to the side of the road for a period of time before safe removal is arranged.

    Please be assured we will come back and clear it, but in the meantime we will monitor it in line with our Highways Safety Inspection Policy.

  • 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.
