Manhole cover missing since beginning of March

Reported via mobile in the Manhole cover broken/missing category by Nadia C at 12:51, Sunday 16 June 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 6113284.

Dear Buckinghamshire Council. On the 18th of March you replied:

The Highway Officer has attended the site and carried an inspection based on your report.

We assess repairs in accordance with our Highways Safety Inspection Policy. This allows us to prioritise the most serious repairs to be completed urgently, with more minor defects such as this one being planned to be completed within 6-8 weeks.

State changed to: Action scheduled

Posted by Buckinghamshire Council at 09:02, Monday 18 March 2024

Respectfully, your 6-8 weeks to fix the problem that is a public hazard had elapsed a long time ago. This is not acceptable. Kind regards, Denham Film Studio resident, dutifully paying council and road tax.

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.
