Broad Lane /M40 bridge

Reported via mobile in the Bridges category anonymously at 08:56, Tuesday 18 June 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 6120697.

I notice 38 tonne Lorries park here waiting for the waste site. The other day I counted seven loaded lorries parked up here. That’s a lot of weight for the bridge to take. Nearly 280 tonnes! I just wondered if this is a problem?

Updates

  • Not all bridges and structures in Buckinghamshire are the responsibility Highways, other bodies that own bridges and structures include:

  • Network Rail: structures associated with the ‘live’railway
  • National Highways: Motorways
  • Canal and River Trust
  • Rights of Way
  • We undertake annual inspections of structures on the Highway that we are responsible for, including special inspections if needed (e.g., collision damage), we also carry out regular maintenance, along with strengthening works to keep our bridges and structures safe and operational, with a minimum of disruption.

    The structures team will carry out an assessment of the bridge and if is our responsibility we will arrange for a site inspection and raise an order to carry out any works required.

    If the bridge is not the responsibility of Buckinghamshire Highways we will forward this report to the relevant organisation.
