Dear Mr Carter

ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION REGULATIONS 2004 - INFORMATION REQUEST

Thank you for contacting Buckinghamshire County Council.

Your request for information has now been considered and the information
you have requested is as follows and attached.
The dates of the safety inspections carried out on Institute Road, Taplow
as well as all defects identified and complaints received for the two
years preceding your request dated 16 April 2011, are detailed in the
attached copy documents. (Please note that our database records this
length of carriageway as Institute Road, Taplow which extends from Station
Road, Taplow to Hitcham Road, Burnham ). If however, you require more
information covering a different section of Institute Road, Taplow please
do not hesitate to contact us.
Institute Road, Taplow is an unclassified road and numbered U332. As such
inspections are carried out at least once a year. In this particular case
carriageway inspections are carried out two times per year. There is no
road section number.

Safety inspections of the carriageway are undertaken from a moving vehicle
travelling at a maximum speed of 15mph with one person present in the
vehicle due to the classification of the road.

Hierarchy classification: This road is deemed to be maintenance category
4b which is an Urban/Rural Unclassified road.

The defect intervention criteria for a category 1 carriageway defect is 40
mm or greater in depth and 300 mm in length or width.

The time period for a repair to be carried out after identification of a
category 1 defect would be within a period of 24 hours for a pothole that
meets the above criteria. If a temporary repair is undertaken to a
category 1 defect, then a permanent repair will be carried out within 28
days. Other, less severe defects or larger structural problems will be
programmed for appropriate repair over a longer time period, generally
between 7 to 28 days, or as part of a routine maintenance programme and
would depend on the severity of the defect.

The Council's current inspection policy was originally reviewed and set in
accordance with the National Code of Practice following it's publication
in 1989.

If you have any further queries or concerns then please contact me.

If you have a complaint about the handling of your request then please use
the Council's complaints procedure (at Stage 3) in the first instance.
