Outside 157 White Hill, Chesham next to junction

Reported via mobile in the Road lines / road markings category anonymously at 13:33, Tuesday 30 April 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5916305.

Double yellow lines have faded and are no longer clearly visible on the road, making it increasingly unsafe as parents drop off their children by parking on these lines, right by a junction and where many children cross this bit of the road to get into school.

I would also be grateful if you could make the lines more visible closer to my driveway, as I sometimes get blocked in.

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.
