  • The report has been passed to the Highway Officer, who will carry out an inspection of the issue within 10 working days, emergency defects will be corrected or made safe at the time of the inspection, if reasonably practicable to do so. In this context, making safe may constitute displaying warning notices, coning‐off or fencing‐off to protect the public from the defect or other suitable action. If the inspection team cannot make safe the defect at the time of inspection, then they will instigate the relevant emergency call procedures to ensure appropriate resources are mobilised to make the defect safe.

  • Update

    The Highway Officer has attended the site and carried an inspection based on your report.

    It is regrettably the case that the limited annual funding available to Buckinghamshire Council each year is insufficient to address all defects identified immediately. For this reason, whilst priority defects will receive a repair within appropriate timescales as dictated by our Highways Safety Inspection Policy, more minor defects such as the defect you have reported are added to a schedule of works which is passed to our contractor, with the instruction the work is to be carried out within 6-8 weeks.
