Island in the middle of Abbey road

Reported via desktop in the Failed reinstatement category anonymously at 14:55, Thursday 18 January 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council 5 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 5460796.

Thames Water came to do a repair over 6 months ago and parked all their heavy machinery on the island in the middle of the road, this damaged the grass and sunk the kerb stones. When they did some repair works they too to much soil away and now the area just floods and people drag mud all over the road. This was previously reported and someone came out to have a look but nothing has happened since. Please can this be looked into and Thames Water contacted about getting this repair sorted.

  • After carrying out any work on the highway, this includes the footpaths/verge, companies who have a legal right or permission to work on the public highway must adhere to the standard set out in the Code of Practice for Reinstatements. These works are guaranteed for 2-3 years dependant on the depth of excavation, if a reinstatement fails and is within the guarantee period, we can instruct them to fix the fault.

    We as the Highway Authority will always carry out an inspection on these reinstatements and if they are deemed to be below standard we will instruction the company to come back out and resolve at their costs, not the taxpayer.
