  • 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. If the inspection team cannot make safe the defect at the time of inspection, then they will instigate the relevant emergency call procedures to ensure appropriate resources are mobilised to make the defect safe.

    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.

  • Update

    We try to carry out larger patching where possible however, the reason we sometimes do not fix all road defeats in the same location at the same time, is because some defects are classified as urgent and are carried out as a higher priority for the safety of road users. We unfortunately have limited finance and resource so we must balance these constraints when managing the Highway network. Some repairs also require different machinery that is not always available, we can assure you however we plan the works on the network as efficiently as possible with the constraints we have to work with.

    We follow a strict Highway Inspection Policy on all Buckinghamshire roads, and we will not ignore any reports from the public, however, we do have to prioritise our repairs based on safety, and it is not practical to fix all the problems that are reported to us.

    Based upon the inspectors’ assessment of a defect, whether this is picked up as part of our Highway Inspection or reported by the public it will be allocated a response time for repair or make safe, which may be 24 hours or part of a planned future maintenance program.

    State changed to: Closed
