Pavement along B485 Chesham Road between Hyde Heath Road and Hyde Lane.

Reported via mobile in the Manhole cover broken/missing category anonymously at 22:10, Thursday 23 May 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 6013871.

There are three drain covers broken and dislodged along this short section of pavement. The one nearest Hyde Heath Road is particularly open and a huge trip hazard. All three affect the pavement and have been in a state of disrepair for a some time but have recently become more dislodged and dangerous for pedestrians.

Updates

  • Almost all manhole covers have some form of identification on them, and it is likely that the manhole cover is owned by a utility company, who are legally responsible for maintaining it.

    This report has been passed to the Highway Officer, who will carry out an inspection within the next 10 working days and if it is found to be the responsibility of Buckinghamshire Highways we will take the appropriate action. If, however, it is found to be the responsibility of the utility company we will report the issue to them, but please note we have no control regarding how long it will take to be fixed by the utility company.
