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

    Buckinghamshire Highways operates two methods for safety defect identification; proactively by Highway Inspectors who identify safety defects in line with Buckinghamshire Councils' Highways Safety Inspection Policy and reactively by Local Area Technicians following reports from the public. On receipt of reports, our Highway Inspection team make an assessment, determine if works are required and if so, the appropriate response times and repair method. It is in these instances only the larger defects are repaired; those which meet the safety intervention levels as outlined in the Inspection Policy. Any remaining defects are monitored for deterioration and added to other programmes of work for repair when resources are available. We also monitor and inspect the quality of repairs aiming to ensure that any work is carried out to the best and most appropriate standard.

    Whilst priority defects will receive a repair within appropriate timescales as dictated by the above policy, more minor defects such as the defect you have reported may not be immediately scheduled for repair. An order for a repair remains in our system for when resource allows and we will continue to monitor the location for any further deterioration.

    State changed to: No further action
