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 markings that are badly damaged or degraded so we may already be aware of this issue and have raised a job to have them refreshed 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 to be carried out at a later date.

    Please note, the ambient temperature drops, and the air becomes much more humid during the winter months and materials won’t bond with the surface when it’s wet, defeating the purpose of applying them at all. Adding markings to a wet surface will essentially mean they become diluted. The moisture present on the road and also in the air will affect the finished quality of the markings, impacting their appearance and longevity, for this reason we only refresh road markings during winter months if there is a specific safety issue.

    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

    With more and more households owning multiple vehicles, parking has become an issue in some areas, drivers who park on a footpath can in some cases, force users of wheelchairs and pushchairs to use the road which is both dangerous and thoughtless.

    If there are road lines/marking on the adjacent road, or there is a bylaw for the area (should be on a signpost at the site) we can, subject to available resources, send a civil enforcement officer (traffic warden) to go and assess, and if a vehicle is parked in contravention of a parking restriction, a penalty charge notice may be issued. However, if there are no road markings on the adjacent road we as a council are unable to take any action, in these cases we would suggest you contact Thames Valley Police as they are responsible for the enforcement of traffic laws, which includes speeding, dangerous driving and dangerous parking please contact them on their non-emergency number 101.
