Dear Mr Tuner-Crowe

 

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 - INFORMATION REQUEST

RFI-8718

 

Thank you for contacting Buckinghamshire County Council.

 

Your request for information regarding Stockwell Lane has now been
considered and our response is as follows:
Dates of all safety inspections undertaken in the two years preceding the
date of 22 November 2019

The dates of the safety inspections carried out on Stockwell Lane, Little
Meadle for the two years preceding 22 November 2019 are detailed in the
attached copy documents (Site History Report – Entity Type: Inspection –
Reference: HW Safety Inspection Quarterly)

 

Details of all carriageway defects identified during safety inspections in
the two years preceding the date of 22 November 2019

All carriageway defects identified during safety inspections in the two
years preceding the date 22 November 2019 are detailed in the attached
copy documents (HW Safety Inspection Reports & Job Sheets)

 

Details of all complaints and/or enquiries relating to the carriageway
received in the two years preceding the date of 22 November 2019

All complaints received for the two years preceding 22 November 2019 are
detailed in the attached copy documents (Site History Report – Entity
Type: Enquiry)

 

The Road Section Number

Stockwell Lane, Little Meadle is a classified road and numbered C63. 
There is no road section number.

 

Details of how carriageway safety inspections are undertaken including
whether walked or driven, the speed of the inspection vehicle and the
number of persons in the vehicle

Safety inspections of the carriageway are now undertaken from a slow
moving vehicle with two persons present in the vehicle due to the
classification of the road. Where the inspector determines that, in their
reasonable opinion, the inspection cannot be undertaken and defects
effectively observed from the vehicle, the inspection will be carried out
on foot.

 

The intended frequency of carriageway safety inspections

Inspection frequencies are based on road hierarchy and have been carried
out four times per year. 

 

The Hierarchy Classification

This road is deemed to be maintenance category 4a which is a Local Link
Road.

 

The Defect Intervention criteria adopted in relation to the identification
of all categories of highway potholes

The time period for a make safe or repair to be carried out after
identification of the defect, is dependent on its determined risk factor. 
As from April 2017 Category 1 defects are repaired within 2 working days;
Category 2H defects are repaired within 5 working days from the time the
defect is assessed in accordance with the Highway Safety Inspection
Policy.

 

If a make safe repair is effected then permanent repairs will be
undertaken within 28 days of the initial make safe repair. Other, less
severe defects or larger structural problems will be programmed for
appropriate repair over a longer time period, or as part of a routine
maintenance programme.

 

The Council's current inspection policy was reviewed and set in accordance
with the 2016 UK Roads Liaison Group Well Managed Highway Infrastructure:
A Code of Practice.

 

Whether or not the Authority has formally adopted all or part of the
standards contained within the National Code of Practice for Highways
Maintenance Management

The County Council has considered and adopted those elements of the Code
Of Practice, Well-Managed Highway Infrastructure, that relates to Highway
Safety Inspections. 

The Policy can be found at
[1]https://www.buckscc.gov.uk/services/tran...
