Road patching completed in March 2024. Clearly old plans/documentation used. This road is parallel to Care Home. NOT A SCHOOL please remove zigzag yellow lines so visitors/shoppers etc can park their car on one long stretch of road. Since wrongly placed yellow zigzags appeared parking has become dangerous and seriously annoying.sL

  • This has been passed to the Highway Officer to investigate, they will carry out an inspection within the next 10 working days.

    All our roads are subject to safety inspections, and this includes identifying any markings that are badly damaged or degraded so we may already be aware of this issue and have raised a job to have them refreshed if this is the case we will update you that it is a duplicate job/enquiry.

    If we were not aware of this issue, we will update you on what action will be taken, this may include adding the road markings to a package of works to be carried out at a later date.

    Please note, the ambient temperature drops, and the air becomes much more humid during the winter months and materials won’t bond with the surface when it’s wet, defeating the purpose of applying them at all. Adding markings to a wet surface will essentially mean they become diluted. The moisture present on the road and also in the air will affect the finished quality of the markings, impacting their appearance and longevity, for this reason we only refresh road markings during winter months if there is a specific safety issue.

    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.

  • Update

    Buckinghamshire Highways operates two types of highway maintenance, both have the same objectives which are to put in place the right road and transport infrastructure to enable residents, visitors, and businesses to move around the county in a safe and efficient way.

  • 1. General Maintenance overseen by the Highway Local Area Technicians, who assess all customer enquiries and take the appropriate action.

    2. Capital Maintenance Projects, these are longer-term projects for maintaining the Council highways. The Capital Maintenance Projects are all agreed by elected members in Buckinghamshire and overseen by the Capital Maintenance Project Team.

    The Local Area Technician has assessed this enquiry and forwarded the details to the Capital Maintenance Team as this is one of their bigger projects.
