Sewage issue Boss Lane

Reported via desktop in the Road surface category anonymously at 12:24, Wednesday 22 May 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 6006490.

There has been an ongoing sewage issues with Affinity and Bucks Highways. Every day there is a very large lorry down Boss Lane, draining the sewage. The lorry parks down the road which is a one way track, making it extremely difficult for cars to pass through. Making it impossible for larger vehicles such as lorries and vans to get through, including the bin crew. Every Wednesday the bins get collected on Boss Lane and the truck cannot get down the lane to collect bins so they have to be reported as missed bins every week. Customer is very unhappy about this and states something needs to be done, this has been going on for over 6 weeks now and the lorry is parked in the way. He is asking if something can be done on their bin collection day for the truck to be able to go up the lane to collect their bins. He would like to know how this issue will be resolved. Please can you contact customer. Thank you.

  • 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.

    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.
