Coombe lane 40 metres west of junction with Wedgwood Dive HP14

Reported via iOS in the Kerb damage / issue category anonymously at 16:14, Tuesday 30 January 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5511580.

At 04:20 on 30/01/24 a truck was unable to climb the sinuous hill of Coombe lane between Hughenden Valley and Naphill. This caused quite a lot of noise and disturbance and its brakes must have failed to a degree. It eventually reversed down Coombe Lane and into Wedgwood Drive onto the green area. The attached photographs show the grassed area adjoining the footpath on the north side of Coombe Lane and the damage caused along with a lot of mud in the gutter for approximately 25 metres plus..!
