Updates

  • This has been passed to the Highway Officer to investigate, they will carry out an inspection within the next 10 working days.

    All our roads are subject to safety inspections, and this includes identifying any road signs that are badly damaged or degraded so we may already have a job raised to resolve it, if this is the case we will update you that it is a duplicate job/enquiry.

    If we were not aware of this issue, we will update you on what action will be taken, this may include adding the road markings to a package of works for the location to be completed at a later date.

    There may also be occasions when the issue reported will not be repaired as it has been classified as a minor defect and does not pose any risk to either the safety or the integrity of the highway, these are called minimum recording levels as specified in our Highways Safety Inspection Policy in these cases no action will be taken.

  • 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.

    State changed to: Action scheduled
