Speed Ramp Eastbound Outside 37/39 Guinions Road HP13 7NT

Reported via desktop in the Road surface category anonymously at 08:18, Thursday 28 March 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5776472.

The heavy duty / reinforced ramps that lead up to the table top speed ramp have collapsed and the metal frame is exposed, this was first reported on the 25.01.2024 (ref 5490373). Since reporting this there has been a repair carried out, but the repair was to pack out the area exposed by filling it with tarmac and packing it down. Over a period of time the constant movement of vehicles going over the ramp, the tarmac filling has come way (as the picture shows). If you compare both pictures supplied the area looks no different even after the repair.

  • 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.

    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.

    During winter months we receive a very high number of reports regarding potholes or a poor road surface, it's easy to assume that potholes are formed due to roads being poorly maintained but that is not usually the case. There are many factors that can cause potholes, particularly during the winter months when water seeps in through cracks in the road surface, collecting underneath and when the water freezes, it expands and creates cracks in the road surface. Our priority is always the safety of road users, so in some cases during busy periods a permanent repair is not always possible immediately. However, temporary repairs are a way to ensure the area is safe until such times as we can return to make a permanent repair.
