Updates

  • The maintenance of these types of signs previously sat with the legacy districts areas, the maintenance responsibility has now moved to our Highways Team who will incorporate them into their Highway Safety Inspection policy, similar to that of other road signs.

    Reports regarding damaged street name plates will go directly to the Local Area Technician who will carry out an inspection and if required order the necessary work to be completed. When a street name plate is damaged and removed it is not economically viable for it to be reinstated in isolation, it will be repaired/replaced as part of a package of works for these types of issues. Please note, in some cases this may mean the sign is removed temporarily for safety reasons.

    The process for naming a new street remains unchanged, requests from developers should be to email streetnaming@buckinghamshire.gov.uk.

  • Update

    Buckinghamshire Highways operates two methods for safety defect identification; proactively by Highway Inspectors who identify safety defects in line with Highways Safety Inspection Policy and reactively by Local Area Technicians following reports from the public.

    Buckinghamshire Highways are responsible for the maintenance of 2,200 miles of road and 1,500 miles of footpaths in Buckinghamshire, this means we have to prioritise works based on a set criteria which includes issues which may present an immediate danger, or significant inconvenience to users of the roads/footpaths, or to the structural condition of the highway and assets contained with the highway boundary. It is regrettably the case that the limited annual funding available to Buckinghamshire Council each year is insufficient to address all defects identified. For this reason, whilst priority defects will receive a repair within appropriate timescales as dictated by the above policy, more minor defects such as the defect you have reported may not be immediately scheduled for repair.

    Please be assured, we will continue to inspect all roads in line with our Highways Safety Inspection Policy

    State changed to: No further action
