Last week there was a road closed sign at the crossroads between Ford and Dinton which disappeared after an hour or two and now the road is closed again. It's not showing on one.network which makes me think it may be an emergency, but also wondering if it's a back up from the sign that was there last week?
All planned work on the public highway (this includes the footpath) in Buckinghamshire, must apply for a permit from us as the local Highway Authority prior to any work starting.
However, there are occasions when work starts before a permit is issued for example emergency work such as a gas leak. The Utility company can start work which is why some are not shown on a href="https://www.">https://one.network/ " a> www.ONE.Network, but they must advise us within 2 hours of the start of the works. We will then ensure the works are added to the system.
A Highways Inspector will attend the site and/or contact the relevant Utility Company to ensure the conditions of the road permit licence are met.
