Lorries to construction site

Reported via desktop in the Road lines / road markings category anonymously at 07:25, Wednesday 17 April 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council 1 week, 1 day, 1 hour, 51 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 5863139.

The site deliveries and collections are blocking access to residents coming on and off estate. This is a major concern as this is the only access on and off our estate for the estate and with another 60+ houses is going to get worse. Something needs to be done to allow easy flow of traffic on and off our estate. I believe the site parking management system needs to be revisited as insufficient parking for contractor staff and deliveries.

  • 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

    You may be able to request a restriction to stop large vehicles from using inappropriate roads or routes if they cause:
    • danger to pedestrians and other road users
    • damage to buildings, roads and bridges
    • congestion on roads

    This may include requesting advisory signage or that a road weight restriction is put in place. The introduction of an Environmental Weight Restriction is enforceable and as such any breach of the Traffic Regulation Order should be reported to Thames Valley Police. Environmental Weight Restrictions often have exceptions in place for loading or local access meaning that some HGVs are permitted to use the road. It is worth noting that the blue ‘unsuitable for HGVs’ signage is advisory, not legally enforceable.

    A feasibility study is likely to be needed to establish if an intervention is needed and what solution is most appropriate. This study may look into traffic flows, road classifications and any evidence of damage, detrimental impact or injuries caused by collisions. Any studies are likely to require local funding. You should in the first instance reach out to your local parish / town council who may be able to assist discussing with the local businesses and communities potentially affected; identifying any suitable alternate routes for HGVs; and assessing the effect on traffic speeds.

    The parish / town council and local Buckinghamshire Councillor may be able to help with the creation of a business case and sourcing any local funding needed for the installation.

    In the absence of any legal restrictions being in place, if you’re able to identify the HGV operator it is worth contacting the company to alert them of your concerns (or doing this via your local parish / town council). We would not recommend stopping an HGV on the road as your safety and the safety of others is paramount, however you might be able to identify the company from branding on the vehicle or identifying their origin/destination. Their contact details should be available online, and many companies would want to be informed of issues and take resulting actions where possible (such as altering their routes).
